School Story

I enjoyed band and clarinet choir in High School. Mr. Frede always wanted me to march, but there just was not enough time in my day. I sat next to Bill Dooley for my senior year in band. A friendship of a lifetime!!
One of my favorite memories was being called out of the audience my sophomore year for National Honor Society. In later years I was able to get friends out of class as they became members.
I was proud to work with Hazel Maxwell and the Future Teachers of America to start the tutoring program that we had our Senior Year. I took advantage of it, and hoped that others did as well. I do remember everyone that said being a member of FTA was not very cool, but look how many of us became educators!
I was also proud of my efforts to coordinate clubs and committees in Inner School. We had great cooperation and communication between all of the organizations. I met new people and learned new things.
