Advantages of being the 1st graduating class from Gateway:

1. We were "upper classmen" in Freshman Year.
2. Could play Varsity sports in Freshman Year.
3. We had a big huge brand new school all to ourselves in the beginning.
4. Graduated in the illustrious year of "69.

Can't think of too much else , but maybe some others out there could add to this list.

5. We weren't confined to a bunch of traditions passed down from previous classes.
6. Got to be the big fishies in a very small and safe pond.
