8th Grade Graduation

Robin Johnson 8th Grade Graduation Photo

In 1977, Robin graduated from St. Saviour elementary, and went on to Brooklyn Technical High School.

I know what you’re thinking… you’re thinking, “Wait a minute! There’s something wrong with your math. If she was born in May 1964, shouldn’t she have left 8th grade in 1978?” Yes, except for one thing: when Robin was 7 years old, she was smarter than you, and she skipped the 3rd grade.

So, she went on to Brooklyn Technical High School for a couple years… and then things got interesting.

The original photo was owned by Robin’s paternal grandmother, and is now owned by Robin’s Aunt Justina.

Post edited on 11 March 2015 to correct the date from 1978 to 1977 and add the explanation of the skipped grade, which I had somehow forgotten when I first wrote the post.
