As Kurt Vonnegut is my Witness

Okay, I've decided to give the whole tired Kathy Field thing a rest. For one thing, it's not like she's the only success story from East. A lot, or at least several, East alumni have gone on to rewarding meaningful significant careers.
Plus, a graduating class is really just a granfalloon as described in Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle, isn't it?
A granfalloon is a recognized grouping of people that, underneath it all, has no real meaning.
So good job, Kathy, and let's let Bob Dylan have the last word, shall we? From Tangled Up in Blue:
All the people we used to know
They're an illusion to me now.
Some are mathematicians
Some are carpenter's wives.
Don't know how it all got started,
I don't know what they're doin' with their lives.
