There was a sense of sadness throughout the South Pasadena High School campus last Friday as students learned about the passing of the school’s longtime English teacher James Asher. The announcement fell on the same day as the annual Farewell Assembly, when seniors gather with the student body one last time. The event inside the school’s gymnasium featured performances from the pep squad, recognition of retiring teachers, and singing of the alma mater. The assembly was dedicated in memory of Jim Asher. The South Pasadena High School graduation ceremony is scheduled to begin Friday, June 9 at 5 p.m. Above, at the conclusion of the assembly, black and orange balloons fell on the seniors.
