CAMP ZAMA, Japan — Fifty years ago, the Big Bopper had just died, rapper Flavor Flav was born and a small American high school at Camp Zama held its first graduation.

More than 100 school alumni representing graduating classes from throughout Zama American’s history gathered on base this weekend to celebrate the school’s history.

“This is great, I’m having a lovely time,” said Lyle Bishop, representing the class of 1960, the oldest class present.

The celebration began Friday morning with a tree-planting ceremony in which alumni, current students and school faculty planted 15 trees near the school grounds.
