Convocation: Behind the scenes with the Class of ‘62

A little known but impressive tradition is the ‘giving out’ of neckties at the convocations to the graduates by the Class of 1962.

This year was no exception. Two ex cadets from that ’62 Class, 5611 Gerry Stowe and 5618 Gord Walt were working behind the spotlight and away from all the attention on the main stage.

We asked Gerry who also happens to be the Adjutant for the Old Brigade how long they have been handing out these ties. “I think we have been doing this for about 15 years at least. We also give them to those who get an RMC degree at CFSC Toronto. Our Class will be doing this again at the Fall Convocation.”

To the surprise of many of the graduates they received a personal handshake and a necktie – all compliments of the Class that graduated 54 years ago.

Well done, Class of ’62.
