150 Graduates for 150 Years
On June 28, 1866 nine young men and women participated in the first ever commencement of Tecumseh High School at the Union School. Seven men and two women received diplomas in the classical course and English.
150 years later, more than 270 followed in their footsteps on June 4, 2016. This series of articles will look back decade by decade at some of the most prominent graduates of Tecumseh High School over the last 15 decades.
Special thanks to the Tecumseh District Library, specifically Chuck Harps; the Tecumseh Historical Museum; and the Tecumseh Alumni Association for their help with this project.
