Gary Meckley: Vaulting to the Moon

November 14, 2012

It’s a long way from Kane, but Gary Meckley’s 1960 classmates were sure he would fly to the lunar surface one day. According to the whimsical Senior Class Prophecy, the talented thin-clad would make it there with the aid of only his trusty steel pole. In his Senior Yearbook, his cohorts wrote “The class of 1960 held its 25th annual reunion at Crater Inn on the moon, United States Territory. The classmates flew there by way of Missile Space Lines, except for Gary Meckley, who came via pole vault. Since Gary learned the art of pole vaulting, he hasn’t considered any other means of transportation.”
