“Seniors start on life’s pathway to success while others will enjoy vacation next three months,” noted the Aspen Times on May 24, 1929. “Last night was the night of all nights for the members of the Aspen High School when eight young ladies and six young gentlemen received their ‘sheep skins’ to entitle them to get out and hustle along life’s pathway. They are now equipped to a degree, it is true, but that they will have to hustle, is also true! An interesting program was arranged and the capacity of the Isis theatre was taxed by the parents and friends of the Class of 1929. Thus ends the school year of 1928-1929 and the merry vacation period is on for the next three months.” This image shows the Aspen High School Class of 1929.
