I smile every time I see this photograph of my mother and her friends!😊
As teenagers, she and her closest cousins loved the beach!
This photo, with Sister Grace Imelda, was taken at a beach party for the celebrating graduates of Sts. Peter & Paul High School.
On June 5, 1953, the graduation ceremony was held at the Catholic Church where many classmates received honorary awards.
Diane Mawson, our Aunt, was bestowed with the highest honor for four years of study.
Louis Greaux received the Leon A. Mawson Commercial Course Award.
For passing seven comprehensive examinations, Albert Harthman, Richard Martinsen, Erik Pedersen, Mercedes Greaux, Diane Mawson, Marlene Mawson and Valerie Melchoir received Catholic University of America Diploma Awards.
Those week-long graduation celebrations gave my mother and her sister the fondest memories!
