Proceedings of the 1886 Worthington High School graduation ceremony and class roll are documented in this program. The graduates were Louie Brand, Grace Gilbert, Honora Hannon, Anna Johnson, Mary Scott, Dan W. Wright and Daniel Webster Scott.

Daniel Webster Scott, according to his obituary in the "Dayton Herald" from November 20, 1945, would go on to be one of the first African-Americans to graduate from Oberlin College. After college, he lived in Chicago and New York, and worked for Harry M. Stevens, a restaurateur known as the "Peanut King" and the inventor of the hot dog. Scott managed restaurants at New York City's Madison Square Garden, Yankee stadium and in Havana, Cuba.

Honora Hannon went on to become dramatics instructor at Worthington High School. The 1920 Worthington High School "Oracle" yearbook notes that she'd been the dramatics instructor for the last ten years, and includes a short history written by her of the dramatics department at the school.
