FIRST WILLIAM FLOYD COMMENCEMENT 1953

That's Walter T . Shirley, about to deliver a few words to the first 8th grade to graduate from the brand new school, he donated the land for. A very young principal Walter Wallace Thomas is seated behind him. Patchogue radio Station WPAC is covering this big event,. It would be seven more years before the first High School Class would graduate in the same auditorium. Now little did Walter T. know that another Floyd graduate in 1953 (one from the first kindergarten class) or anyone else for that matter. would some 51 years later be writing a 30 page website with over 200 photos and newspaper clippings about the life and times of one Walter T Shirley. Not even me.... but I did write it and you can look at your leisure by clicking here
