‘Presidential Preparations’

Charter TV 3

March 21st, 2014 by 


The recent announcement that President Barack Obama will be speaking at the commencement exercises for Worcester Technical High School on June 11 reminded the College community of another presidential commencement address: Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 at Fitton Field.

“7,500 people lined the streets, school was dismissed for the day so that school children could watch, and there were another 14,000 people in the stands at Fitton Field to hear the president speak,” said Rev. Anthony Kuzniewski, S.J., a professor in the history department.
