On June 28th at the Union School nine young men and women participated in the first ever commencement of Tecumseh High School. Seven men and two women received diplomas in the classical course and English. It was 1866. Now 150 years later more than 270 are set to follow in their footsteps on June 4th. This series of articles will look back decade by decade at some of the most prominent graduates of Tecumseh High School leading up to the graduation of this year’s class.
