Senior Assembly

Director: Charles Bradshaw

                            A BRIEF HISTORY OF SENIOR ASSEMBLY

 

Senior Assembly is a twenty-nine year old tradition at Wahconah Regional High School, modeled after a program begun over forty seven years ago by director Charles Bradshaw at Ludlow High School, where he wrote and directed Senior Assembly for seventeen years. At the urging of Assistant Principal Richard Farley and Mr. Bradshaw, Wahconah’s Principal, the late Jay Decker, agreed to the staging of the first-ever Wahconah Senior Assembly on June 9, 1989 by the Class of 1990. The rest has been history, and Senior Assembly has become a deeply rooted aspect of Wahconah’s annual farewell to its senior classes, staged every year since 1989.  Wahconah staff members from across many departments serve annually as volunteer assistants. The assembly has always attempted to impress upon graduating seniors that they truly will be missed, and that the school is not merely “going through the motions” in proving that. Through the years the program has seen a mixture of the predictable and the unpredictable and has always been orchestrated by the Junior Class. Among the program’s themes have been baseball, farming, the weather, the ocean, animals, the circus, Homer’s Odyssey, food, colors and hometowns, outer space and today, the hometown village. The distribution of letters to parents, the awarding of Excellence in Teaching to a deserving faculty member, the faculty and junior class skits, some wonderful keynote addresses and the power point display near the end of the program are just some of its highlights which give all of the school community an excellent opportunity to say goodbye to its seniors the “Wahconah Way.”

As time goes by during the current 2016-2017 school year, information will be provided about parents can help support Senior Assembly '17 through program ads. We also hope to upload some past Senior Assembly photos here as well.

The 2017 Senior Assembly will be held on Friday, 2 June at 10:00 a.m.
