More Sketches from Rod Lent

Here are more samples of the late Rod Lent's art work.  The sketch of the school (bottom) was drawn 1994.  It was used in the NPHS Class of 1969 Reunion brochure.  While it clearly depicts our alma mater, the drawing captures the simple yet sturdy nature of any small suburban high school.  It is a school for everyman (and woman) in any time.  The school could exist in any state in the union.  The Class of 1969 sketch (top) appears to show generic members of the class of 1969 in middle age....a little heavier, a little straighter, and some with a little less hair.  And we all seem to be sagging a bit from the everyday burdens of adulthood.
