There are twenty-two members in the graduating class of the Shinglehouse
High School this year, and they are:
The Baccalaureate sermon will be delivered by Rev. Harry Shepson of Towanda, Pa., at the Baptist church on Sunday evening, June 3.
The Baccalaureate Service
The Baccalaureate service was held in the First Baptist church on Sunday evening, June 3rd, and the auditorium and adjoining room were packed to capacity with relatives and friends of the graduating class. The church was tastefully decorated for the occasion with potted plants and cut flowers. The pastor, Rev. Neuer, was assisted in the service by Rev. Andrus of the Methodist Church, and the speaker of the evening was Rev. Harry M. Shepson of the First Baptist church of Sayre, who delivered a forceful and most inspiring sermon. Mr. Shepson is certainly an orator and lecturer of no mean ability and the message he brought to the Seniors and Juniors and others was deeply appreciated. There was special music rendered by the choir and a solo by Mrs. Ebeling.
Twenty-two Members in Class of 1928
Splendid Program at M. E. Church Wednesday, June 6, twenty two members of the Senior class of 1928 were graduated from the Shinglehouse High School. As usual the Commencement exercises which were held in the auditorium of the Methodist church, were witnessed by a packed house.
The following program was very well rendered and each member of the class put his or her part over with great success.
President's Address ..................
Many new numbers are seen on this program -- something new and different from former classes. The Senior Commandments given by William Stisser was a very cleverly arranged welcome. The Class Oration by William Green was another new subject, well rendered, on this program. The Class Medley, a vocal solo by Percy Hanks was also something new on this interesting program, as was also the violin solo by Miss Orlu McDowell. County Superintendent of Schools A. P. Akley of Coudersport was present during the exercises and delivered the address of the evening. After the brief address he presented the class with their diplomas.
The auditorium was very prettily decorated by the Junior class with the graduating class colors, purple and white. Many new ideas were brought out by the class of "interior decorators" The motto of the class of '28 "Tonight we launch, where shall we anchor?" was very prominently displayed. Again as a year rolls around the Shinglehouse High School has graduated another class of young people, who will either go out into the busy world to make their own way or enter some college to make further advance in learning. And we might add that the former graduates who are finishing college courses this year are as follows:
Miss Alyene Fenner, Cornell; Guy Beasor,
Bucknell; Rupert Appleby, Dickinson; Kenneth Ruppert,
Syracuse; Newton Mattison and LaVerne Wagner,
State College; the Misses Mary Kenyon and Gertrude
Mills of Mansfield State Teachers College.
Shinglehouse has a school that the citizens ought to feel proud of.
The Board of Education has always endeavored to secure the best possible
teachers for the grades and the high school faculty. The present teaching
staff has certainly done excellent work and we think that our citizens
will agree with us in stating so.

ALUMNI BANQUET AND DANCE
The seventh annual banquet and reunion of the members of the Shinglehouse High School was held on Thursday evening, June 7, 1928 in the beautiful dining room of the Masonic Temple on Oswayo street in Shinglehouse. About 125 members of the Alumni Association gathered at this time.
Perhaps not the largest number of members of the Association were present
this year, but it is easy to say that those present certainly had the time
of their lives. How could they help it?
During the course of the sumptuous banquet, several songs were sung by the reunioners' which greatly added to the merriment and general good time of the evening. After the dinner several short but very interesting talks were listened to, from members who were introduced very ably by Toastmaster Dr. Claude Womer.
Among those from away who attended were: Mr. and Mrs. Claude Womer of Eldred, Mr. and Mrs. Monroe Burdic, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Shaner of Boliver, Mr. and Mrs. Ovid Knight of Franklinville, Mr. and Mrs. Will Fox of Olean, Joseph Flannigan of Ceres, Mr. and Mrs. Clayton Wingard of Bell Run, Miss Katherine Keller of Bolivar, Miss Helen Swarthout of Jamestown, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Baldwin of Emporium, Reavoe Wandover of Washington, D. C., and Clair Wandover of Renova, Pa. .
Sophomore Day at S.H.S. 1928
Friday March the 9th was observed as Sophomore Day at the Shinglehouse
High School and what the class lacked in quantity was made up in quality.
The chapel exercises had been very carefully planned by the Sophomore class
under the supervision of Miss Elizabeth Sheely, the Sophomore
advisor. At that time the class presented the High School with a splendid
portrait of Prof. W. H. Briggs, who during his eight years
of service in the local High School has won the respect of all.
