First Graduating Class

The first class to graduate from Harrah was in 1920. There were four graduates that year: Ruth Radebaugh, Linda Sweeney, Cleona Beavers and Harold Clark. They didn't have caps, gowns, senior rings or senior pictures. Each graduate had a pin with his/her initials on the back. Check our Facebook page for pictures.
