Of these 8 students ten will continue their education at colleges; one will begin job training; four will join the service and two have said they will take government secretarial positions in Washington, D. C, for which they have qualified.

Merchant, Cherry Street, Buzzards Bay at Acadia College, New Brunswick; Beverly A. Bosnengo, daughter of John J. Bosnengo, Buzzards Bay Avenue at Becker Junior College, Worcester; Gary H. Willey, son of Herbert A. Willey, Wings Neck Road, Pocasset at Bentley School of Accounting, Boston; Mary Ann Bernabel of 12 Bayberry Road at Bridgewater State Teachers College, Bridgewater; Donna L.

Cook 39 Wilson Avenue, Buzzards Bay at Bryant College of Business Administration, Providence; Peter W. Mackesy, son of Vincent A. Mackesy, Shore Road. Monument Beach at Boston University Junior College, Boston; Crystal A. Campbell, daughter of Clayton Edward Campbell Shore Road, accepted at Simmons College, Boston and Ronald H.
