MALONE, Pres. Funtleroy Way S.W. & S.W. Edmunds (in West Seattle) ) to the GRADUATES class of '63 and to their families ONGRATULATIOHS By Frances Vitulli and, Fred Cordova his is a good crop of high sc'hool graduates. It could well may be a bumper crop, considering that 1,102 will receive diplomas these commencement days from 15 high schools in the Archdiocese. The aggregate graduate total another all-time high in the annals of the archdiocesan secondary school systembeats by one the 1962 record. But quantity does not denote quality. After interviewing a representative group of these graduates, we are confident that the leadership of the nation, state and community as well as the Church will be in safe hands in years to come. The moment of truth for 813 seniors of nine Seattle Catholic high schools arrives at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 2, in the Seattle Center Arena. Presiding and presenting diplomas at the ninth annual combined commencement will be the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle. Assisting the Archbishop.in the ceremony will be Rt. Rev. Monsignor Philip H. Dully, archdiocesan superintendent of schools. Principal speaker will be Roger E. Dun ham, prominent Seattle attorney and an alum- nus of O'Dea High School. His topic will be "Wake Up and Live." Among the graduates will be his daughter, Marilee, 17, of Forest Ridge Convent. Adult chairman of the Archdio- cesan CYO Speakers' Bureau, Dunham lives with his wife and three children at 5133 NE 55th St. in Assumption Parish. The valedictory wilt be given by Ramunas (Ray) Mikelionis of Seattle Prep. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Juoza Mikelionis, 4746 l lth Ave. NE in Blessed Sacrament Parish. The salutatory will be delivered by Forest Ridge's Anne Hanify, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Hanify, 1223 21st Ave. E. in St. Joseph's Parish. Here's the lineup of Seattle schools and the number of their graduates: Blancher, 228; Forest Ridge, 38; Holy Angels, 53; Holy Names, 181, a new Academy record; Holy Rosary, 51; Immaculate, 46, another high for that school; O'Dea, 99; St. Euphrasia's, 10; and Seattle Prep, 107, also a new school mark. Commencement exercises in the six other schools in Archdiocese will also be held. One hundred and eighty-one will graduate from Tacoma's three schools: Aquinas, 65: Bellarmine, 78, and St. Leo's, 38. One hundred and eight more are numbered from the three southwest schools: Provi- dence in Vancouver, 15; St. Martin's in Olympia, 67; and St. Mary's in Winlock; 26, the number tying last year's record at that Academy. "How much do these graduates value their Catholic education? Here are some of their thoughts: "Catholics need more knowledge to pass on their Faith," says Patrlcla Jean Carel, whose four-year grade point average of 3.951 earned her the salutatorias role at Holy Angels. "Besides understanding it, Catholics must realize what their Faith means to them. Their's must be a living Faith, something very vital to them." Patricia is one of three in her class who plans to become a Religious. An active school leader and an officer every year, she is senior class president. Doing baby-sltting since the fourth grade, she has "'put herself through high school" by earning her own tuition every year. Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. M. Carel, 17321 Evanston Ave. in St. Luke's Parish, she will join the Dominican Sisters of the Congregation of the Holy Cross who staff Holy Angels. "My Catholic education has meant everything to me," declared Suzanne Guiehard of Holy Rosary. "It has rounded me out spiritually,, educationally and even socially." Another senior with a high GPA mark (3.65), Suzanne plans to major in Spanish and home econornics at Seattle University. She is the second oldest of eight children of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth R. Guic'hard, 3619 44th Ave. SW in Holy Rosary Parish. The August issue of the national Catholic magazine, Extension, will feature for its front cover the "Immaculate Heart of Mary." The artist is Mary Maloney, an honor student with a 3.0 GPA at Holy Names. Also an active student in the Academy's extracurricu|ar affairs, Mary Maloney is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James V. Maloney, 2058 78th St. NE in Bel- levue's Sacred Heart Parish. Planning to enter the University of V/ashnigton to major in com- mercial art, she said: 'Tll be meeting a lot of new ideas at a secular university. But it'll be easier because a Catholic has a goal in mind and knows where he or she is going. I can thank my Catholic education for that."
