To the editor:

I graduated from Newton High School in 1944. I have always been thankful for the excellent education I received in the Newton school system.

At one of our class reunions, one of our class members asked Pop Lynn to name some of the graduates who had achieved higher degrees and were “outstanding.” His answer was, “Everybody who graduates from NHS is outstanding.” Our group applauded. I will always remember his answer.
