BONA FIDE GRADUATES: Members of Princeton
High School's graduating class perform the tradition of moving
their tassels from one side to the other of their mortarboard
hats, thereby indicating their newly acquired status of graduates,
after receiving their diplomas.
The approval to build a 16,740-square-foot, Michael
Graves-designed building on the current site of the Arts Council
on 102 Witherspoon Street was handed down by the Princeton Regional
Planning Board last Thursday, and with it came the end of another
chapter in the Arts Council's often troubled relationship with
the neighborhood that surrounds the building.
An ongoing dispute between Princeton University and
heirs of the A&P fortune resurfaced last week when family
member William Robertson outlined intentions to move forward with
a lawsuit regarding the use of a $35 million gift.
Many of the 308 seniors who graduated from Princeton
High School last Friday will go on to schools of higher education,
but at least seven of those students may have not have had the
opportunity to do so without the help of a recently developed
program at Princeton University.
