Cleveland’s St. Joseph class of 1990 finally gets its yearbook

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Yearbooks leave a lasting impact on students and this story shows how much yearbooks mean.

Reporter Michael McIntyre recently wrote a piece for cleveland.com about the class of 1990 at Cleveland’s all-male St. Joseph High School, which did not produce a yearbook in their final year before merging with another school, Villa Angela.

That meant there was no record of several events from the year, including a state championship in football. And there were no records to remember three seniors from the class of 1990 who tragically lost their lives in a car accident.

However a member of that graduating class of 1990, Dan Regovich, has now gone back 25 years later using photo archives kept by math teacher Tim Robertson and pieced a yearbook together with the help of current Villa Angela-St. Joseph adviser Gary Minadeo.
