Of the 14 graduates from Assumption High School last Sunday, three stood out for the fact that they’ve been classmates since their very first day in kindergarten 13 years ago.Meet the “original three” from Assumption: Barton Jakki Kaios, Niro Joji Tareo and Cyrus Curtis Graham.

Approximately $52,200 has been injected into the school by the three in tuition and registration money alone in the course of 13 years.
