Permanent Record Haunts Graduate

Years after graduating Bayley-Ellard and living what appears to be a rather exemplary life since then, marks on the permanent record of Bruce Castleton (’78) continue to haunt him. “That damn permanent record almost cost me a mortgage a few years back,” Castleton says from his home in Tempe, “and just last year it damn near got me kicked off of jury duty. I mean, how long does it take before that thing stops haunting you? I know the Sisters said it was permanent, but come on, I’m 43 years old, this is ridiculous.” Among some of the items in Bruce’s record are smoking on campus; giving a substitute teacher the finger; and mooning the audience during the final performance of The Pajama Game.
