Finney Chapel


OHS ALMA MATER

When darkness all about us hovers

And midnight shades are drawing nigh

We’ll sing as truly ardent lovers

To thee, our sacred Oberlin High.

We love, we trust thee in thy splendor,

And ever more until we die

Our hearts for thee will be more tender

Our love more sacred — Oberlin High.

With the swell of the music came tears Friday as loved ones witnessed the graduates of the Oberlin High School Class of 2016 cross the Finney Chapel stage to receive diplomas. We were there to capture the emotion in photos.
