Minor edits to the page
Thought I'd post comments to my minor edits to this page. I'm in California, so I have no prior interest in this school.
I'm a child of the AP Style Guide, so I adjusted the hyphenation used in the original and generally smoothed syntax. I felt that the opening para was weak and punched it up a bit. I'm unsure of the reference to third-class and etc. in the original article... this may be local legal usage, so I didn't change that. I might have used Class-1, Class-2... etc.
Since it is not my place to do original research here, I respectfully suggest to the original writer (if listening) that they identify the class valedictorian referenced if possible, since this seems to come from a more detailed history. Leaving him unknown is very unsatisfying to the reader and possibly unfair to him and his family if they still live in the area.
Minor update to first graduating class information
I added the name of the valedictorian as suggested by Angeleum-II (thanks for your edits), and a list of the names of the first graduates and what they became. I didn't have that information, but found it by chance while researching my family history and it turns out my great uncle was the valedictorian.
