Ten pupils were graduated from the Tomales High School course and three were awarded commercial school certificates at exercises held in the Tomales Town Hall last Saturday.
The Hall was well filled with relatives and friends of the students who completed their studies at the Tomales Joint Union High School, and the excellent program was well received.
The first number on the program was a march, played by Miss Grace C. Grady, and then the saluatory was given by one of the graduates, Miss Margie Stump. Henry Watkins delivered an oration on “Vocational Guidance,” and this was followed by a son, “Doan Ye Cry, Ma Honey,” by the Senior Girls’ Glee Club.
An essay on “Physical Education in the High School” by Miss Elsye Codoni preceded the valedictory, “The Crisis in Education,” by Miss Annie Hopkins. The girls’ chorus then sang “My Isle of Golden Dreams.”
The principal address was made by Hon. Stanley B. Wilson, member of the State Board of Education, his subject being “The New Daybreak.”
Preceding the presentation of diplomas by Edwin Bean, president of the high school board of trustees, Miss Irene Mai Grady contributed a vocal solo.
The graduates were: Claire Codoni, Elsye Codoni, Annie Hopkins, Gertrude
Guldager, Americo Matteri, John Mitchell, Margie Stump, Mildred Stump,
Roger Stump and Henry Watkin. Commercial certificates were awarded to Ann
Adams, Elsye Codoni and Mildred Stump.
