“Warwick in History” – In June of 1932 the auditorium of the high school was filled with parents and friends of the largest graduating class in the history of Warwick to that date, numbering 28.

The main address of the evening was by William J. Regan, principal of the Oakwood School at Poughkeepsie. It was filled with good advice and many witticisms, and stories of experiences of boys and girls who had come under his supervision, which illustrated very effectively his point that you “can’t get something for nothing”.

The presentation of prizes was made by Prof. Smith, with the exception of the American Legion Citizenship Medals given to students finishing the eighth grade. These were awarded by Commander of Warwick Township Post, William Acker, to Nevin Carmen and Carolyn Armstrong, with Jack Kroh and Ruth Marks receiving honorable mention.
