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