Gonzaga Preparatory High School 1928-1929

From what I can determine, my Dad had a good time in high school. He played basketball, football and participated in track. He was in several class clubs.  He did his school work and completed his courses.  The time was coming for him to graduate.

Here is a little about the highlights of the year 1928-1929:

The year went quickly and formal announcements must be sent out inviting family and friends to the graduation ceremony to be held on June 7th, 1929.

      In past posts I have described some of the classes he took. I have tried to learn more about why they used that terminology but I have not yet it out. The archivist at the Gonzaga University said he was on the mechanics path, but I do not know why he would say that since there are none of those courses offered. The though of my Dad learning Latin is really fun…he actually had his old language and made up words.
