Meadow Grove H. S. Gives 25 Diplomas
Certificates of Award and Scholarships are Presented
Meadow Grove, Neb., May 16—Special to The News: Commencement was held in Meadow Grove high school Monday night with Newton W. Gaines as the speaker. Despite the fact that a terrific wind, rain, and hail storm visited this section between 7 and 8 p.m. the school auditorium was filled to capacity with the parents and friends of the class of 1940.
The 25 seniors in caps and gowns were seated on the stage. Seventeen of the graduates are from farm homes, seven from the town of Meadow Grove, and one from Battle Creek. Judging by the sentiment expressed by various graduates none of the members of the class is likely to attend college next year unless given an opportunity to work for room and board.
