Class of 2015 learns from Houdini

Sarah Desantis of newsitem.com reports that the Line Mountain High School Class of 2015 got a bit of a lesson in Houdini during their graduation ceremonies last Friday:

Principal Jeffrey Roadcap reflected on key moments in history occurring on June 12 and tied each one to a lesson. In recalling Harry Houdini's act of freeing himself from a straitjacket while suspended from 40 feet upside down in New York City on June 12, 1923, Roadcap pointed to the importance of perseverance to get out of sticky situations.

"You need determination to be successful in life," he said.

A second Houdini connection would be if the students marched out to the traditional Pomp & Circumstance. This was Houdini's opening music for his 3 Shows in One.

Houdini Lives indeed.
