Our Day in History - June 7

Yep, we have a lot of common that day. This day cumulated our years of
schooling before we parted ways to join the fabric of American life. But did
you know that a lot of history was made on this day alone? For starters, NCSD's
football star of 1963, 1964, and 1965, Billy Jernigan and his wife, had a baby girl
Sue Ann, born the day we were receiving our diplomas.

I have collected, on this page, interesting events of history that has occurred
before and after our Graduation Day. I was really surprised at what I found and
I know you will too.
