CLEVELAND-- It took more than two decades, but the last class of an all-boys Catholic high school has its yearbook.

Back in 1990, no student volunteered to put together a yearbook for St. Joseph High School in Cleveland. So none was ever made.

The widow of the yearbook adviser found thousands of pictures from that year, after his death and again looked for someone to make a yearbook.

This time, 1990 graduate Daniel Regovich volunteered. He said he regretted not doing it 25 years ago. There were so many memories from that class that he felt needed to be documented in a yearbook.

"We were state champs in football that year, the only one in the history of the school to have a championship in football. We were state champs in wrestling, runners-up in basketball. That was also the year three of our classmates died on the day we graduated. So, there are a lot of memories in all those pictures that were never put together,” he said.

The yearbook has pictures not only of the 1990 graduating class, but also includes class photos of the freshman, sophomores and juniors that school year.

Regovich ordered 100 yearbooks, and still has about half to sell. He said the proceeds from the sales will go to Villa Angela-St Joseph, which is now a coed school and to a scholarship in memory of the three classmates who died.
