I have a very small stack of newspaper clippings from high school days, and came across this picture of the Gold Seal Bearers. The headline was “Faculty, Fellow Students Select Top Award Recipients.” I can’t believe the horrible dress I was wearing!

This picture was taken so long ago that at the moment I don’t remember whether it was taken before or after graduation. According to the commencement ceremony program, Sealbearers are students who “maintained membership in California Scholarship Federation for four or more semesters including one in the senior year achieving at least three A’s and one B each semester. CSF is nationally recognized.”

Sealbearers got this gold sticker affixed to their diplomas.

There is a Wikipedia entry on California Scholarship Federation, and it still exists to recognize students who have achieved high standards in academic scholarship, community service and citizenship.

Of the people in the picture, I only know for sure that Laura Ziskin has passed away, but how about the rest of you? I’ve reconnected with Kenda Vaughn and Alyse Trostler on FaceBook but for the rest of you, please use the “Contact us” tab at the top of the page to send us your news. And we would love to see a recent photo!
