NNHS Class of '68 Senior Class Song


With memories of happy years
We leave our dear school
We hope we can smile without tears
A bit more sage, a bit less fool

Faith and hope must be our stay
Today is the end of yesterday
And the beginning of tomorrow.

Words and Music by Agnes Blandford and Peyton Clark


Graduation Day

- Joe Sherman / Noel Sherman, 1956

(Beach Boys version recorded 05/05/65)

There's a time a for joy
A time for tears
A time we'll treasure through the years
We'll remember always
Graduation day

At the senior prom
We danced 'til three
And there you gave your heart to me
We'll remember always
Graduation day

Though we leave in sorrow
All the joys we've known
We can face tomorrow
Knowing we'll never walk alone
When the ivy walls
Are far behind
No matter where our paths may wind
We'll remember always
Graduation day
We'll remember always
Graduation day
