Wondering if you should come?
Please note that we consider anyone who at some point was on a school trajectory to graduate from Taft in 1974 as one of our classmates, even if they weren’t present at commencement exercises in June of 1974. If that applies to you, know that you are very much a part of our class and are invited to share in this and any of our 1974 Tiger alumni events, as many in the same situation have done in the past.
We know we have a number of classmates who:
---Graduated a year early, e.g., you're "officially" a Class of 1973 member
---Graduated a year late, e.g., you're "officially" a Class of 1975 member
---Moved away before graduation, e.g., you ended up graduating from another high school)
---Entered the military before graduation
---Needed to leave school early for personal reasons - we have classmates that finished with a GED or didn't finish
You are all encouraged to attend.
