Share your most embarrassing or your funniest high school memory:

When I was a freshman and fell down the stairs and 3 or 4 boys saw me. (they laughed instead of helping me up!). Also Mrs. Eakin just humiliated me one day in class.

Any other School Stories you wish to share?

I was a wallflower (or so I felt) in high school, not enough confidence in myself and too shy to join clubs (except for Future Homemakers of America!) I really did want to be a part of all the other clubs but was afraid I wouldn't be accepted. One thing I'll never forget was study hall in the library when Albert "Butch" Prince's hippie beads broke and made a clatter and rolled everywhere. I remember our librarian's real name Eunice Rogers ("Miss Mousy was a nickname I remember. My two older sisters graduated in 1956 and 1959 and she was Miss Mousy then too).
