  1. 1. In 1990, we witnessed the Dawn of a New Decade and left the corridors and comfort of Hyde Park Career Academy anticipating that new and exciting things lie ahead for us. In addition to this feeling of expectancy, we had a zeal to go places, accomplish goals and achieve success. Well, here we are 20 years later experiencing the Dawn of Another Decade and we hold the same anticipation – this time around reconnecting with former classmates, locker partners, study hall buddies, park companions, detention associates, prom dates, good friends, and control room posses. The Hyde Park Career Academy Class of 1990 20-Year Reunion Planning Committee cordially invites you to celebrate the occasion of our class reunion with us on the weekend of June 25-26, 2010. EVENTS Friday, June 25 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. Parkway Ballroom 4455 South King Drive Located in the historic Bronzeville neighborhood, the Parkway Ballroom was a popular club during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.
