Memory Lane Photos and Posters

posted May 4, 2015, 10:39 AM by Geoff Spofford   [ updated May 5, 2019, 10:57 AM ]

One of the most appreciated parts of Project Graduation is Memory Lane.  Photos of the graduates as young children, and today, are displayed in a creative format requiring graduates to guess which child is which student.  Photos of groups, teams, friends, etc. are posted.  Seniors and parents/guardians are encouraged to submit a Senior Poster that can be on display for the night - to go home with the graduate at the end.
