Mater Dei Class of 1984

Mater Dei class of 1984

I recently made a trip out to Lakewood, CA, to a rather bad-ass thrift store. They had a huge selection of VHS tapes for just $0.25! I only found one home movie in the bunch, but ended up walking away with a dozen other crazy videos from the 80’s and 90’s.

This VHS tape was a pretty hillarious find. The video itself isn’t all that funny, rather that my son is about to enter high school and Mater Dei was one of the schools we were evaluating just a week before. I had to chuckle when I found this.

I’ve split this tape up a couple ways. I actually found the ceremony quite interesting and found it amusing when they mention being freshmen and highlights in the year of 1980 with the “new president” Ronald Reagan. There is a good chance some of the students in this ceremony might find this and like to watch this tape in its entirety, so I have a longer version available, as well as an edited version that highlights the speeches.

Here’s a short glimpse of the tape with some rather amusing speeches from the students…

Here’s the edited version highlighting all of the speeches given during the ceremony…

And finally, for those who are interested in the full version…

Enjoy! (and congratulations class of ’84!)
