On Thursday evening, May 21, 1925, commencement exercises were held at eight o'clock for the senior class of Ste. Genevieve High School. The class members were: Vernetta L. Sexauer, Ursula l. Leat, Majella M. Dunker, Margaret M. Ellis, Irvin P. Swift, Margaret A. Lovelace, Raymond J. Estes, Armella L. Petersen, Norma O. Bono, Selma G. Stelter, Walter J. Huck, Myrtle L. Vorst, Xavier L. Ritter, Vera G. Okenfuss, Wilma B. Oberle and Walter W. Wehner.

Myrtle had attended the public Ste. Genevieve High School rather than the Catholic Valle High because she and her cousin and best friend, Nookie (Wilma Oberle) wanted to play basketball. In those days the uniforms were bloomers and middy blouses!
