Sergio Oliver ’58S stopped by campus and shared lots of great memories while attending Farragut. Oliver remembers, “The Cotillion dance as I remember, the last one prior to graduation, May of 1958. I recall painting a sheet, and we surreptitiously ran up the flagpole the night prior to graduation to hang it. What wonderful memories!”
Mike Pacht ’61N recently found this picture taken forty years ago in 1981 at the 20th reunion with the Class of ’61N. After Farragut, Mike attended Coe College and Howard University Law School. After leaving his law practice and four years in NYC as an administrative law judge, he bought and sold a restaurant. Twenty years ago, he also bought a bed and breakfast in Woodstock, Vermont, which he sold six years ago.
