Class of 1975

June 8, 1975, my high school graduation day. I graduated from Harbor Beach High School in Harbor Beach, Michigan. It is hard to believe it has been  35 years. What I wouldn't give to have my dark hair still!

I remember high school with fondness. In high school I was involved in National Honor Society and Student Action for Education (formerly known as Future Teachers of America). I played on the Junior Varsity girl's basketball team for one year. I worked on the stage and costume crew for the school musicals.

Graduation Day was a beautiful, sunny June day. Graduation ceremonies were held in the Harbor Beach High School gym.

We worked at the Harbor Beach Resort as waitresses in the summer during high school. Mary and I went to Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the fall of 1975. We were roommates our freshman year, and suite mates our sophomore year.  We were in each other weddings.  We are still friends today.   Mary lives in Parchment, Michigan now which is about 30 miles from where I live.

  1. Brenda, I think at a young age, you knew you were going to be a genealogist...saving important papers. Smart. Just about everything of mine was tossed. Love your graduation picture.

  2. Luckily, I had a senior memory book, so the papers were put in there.
