A Graduation Gift

all about conrad

Jackie Ptak was Conrad's 11th grade English III CP teacher at La Quinta High School, and one of his favorites. They both shared an avid interest in music; particularly rock 'n roll... more specifically, Ozzy Osbourne. When Conrad graduated the following year, Mrs. Ptak gave him a copy of The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll. Conrad gave her a pin in the shape of a cross with Ozzy's name on it.

Mrs. Ptak inscribed the inside front cover of the book.
The inscription reads:


I thought this might be helpful in your career as a rock and roll writer - and, if that's not what you want to do, it should be! From the moment we connected through Ozzy, I've seen you grow into a fine young man. I'm proud of all you've accomplished. In the words of Ozzy:

"Goodbye to friends
Goodbye to all of this
I guess that we'll meet
We'll meet in the end."

Congratulations on your Graduation!
Mrs. Ptak
