graduated from HHS X 2 & attended 3 jr-sr.

My aunt recently told me that she graduated from HHS twice and attended 3 jr-sr banquets. How did she do this?

She graduated once, thus attending a Jr. Sr. her Junior and Senior year which would be twice. Then after graduating, an error was found that she needed more hours to graduate. So she attended the Jr. Sr. for the 3rd time and graduated twice. Or your Aunt told you this and you believed it.

The Class of 1935 was the last to graduate with eleven grades.
She then went back another year and graduated in the Class of 1936
the first class with twelve grades.

Malcolm is right. I was surprised when my father told me that high school only had 11 grades when he attended. He would have graduated in 1923 or '24. Figured it would be an older person to know the answer.
