Peter Jedick, Thanks for your memories. And Matt Fredmonsky, thanks for the videos for those of us who couldn't return to campus this year.

Thanks, Peter, for sharing your heartfelt memories of Sandy. I am a Kentite, and on May 4th, 1970, I was a senior at Roosevelt High School. They closed our school, and sent us home, and I remember the war-zone atmosphere of our little town of Kent during that time. We had a curfew, helicopters were flying overhead, etc...... Thank you for sharing. Regina

Thanks for posting these speeches! I wish I could have seen the part of my speech that I wrote but thanks for showing the pleas of the Krause family!

Sorry about that Beth. I was running out of battery power and had to pick and choose what I recorded. I enjoyed your part of the speech.
