A Tribute to the Final Days of De La Salle
From the last page of the 1971 DLS Yearbook:
The school year 1971-1972 will be the last for DLS. As of June 15, 1972, De La Salle Academy will be no more.
The physical plant will be taken back by the Diocese but the tradition and the memories which were and are so uniquely De La Salle's will remain in the minds and hearts of its alumni.
Next year, the Senior class will publish its souvenir yearbook dedicated to De La Salle's alumni and offers this final book to all who want that one last memento of an institution that will never be forgotten.
Eulogy - A Poem by Bill Thompson
Your narrow halls, Your walls of stone.
Spirit is hard to define.
But now - where are we? Closing.
And we're to old to cry.
We have yet to make our marks in this world.
Who will remember you?
Goodbye, DLS and thank you.
