CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2012
In June of 1934, 246 eager youngsters graduated from Eleanor J. Toll Junior High School in Glendale, California. To a processional march from Wagner's Tannhauser, students entered the Athletic Field of Herbert Hoover High School. Most listened politely to an address entitled "Training For The Big Job" by Mr. Reynold E. Blight of Los Angles.

78 years have passed and only a few of those who graduated on that afternoon still remain with us, but their names are permanently part of San Fernando Valley history.
