Myra Savant Says, "Hi."

I was born in Ray in 1944 and can remember most of the elementary school teachers' names.

First grade: Mrs. Smith, second, Miss Holmes, who married and became Mrs. Durenberger. third: Mrs Hubbard, fourth Miss Collins, Fifth, Mrs. Powers, Sixth, Mr Avants, Seventh Mr. Kuykendall and I don't remember 8th grade. Our school nurse was Mrs. Blair I think, and the principal was Mr Case. I seem to remember that the superintendent was Mr. Herbert, but I could definitely be wrong on that.

I have a photo somewhere of our first grade class.

Some Bearcats Have Another Picnic

A bunch o' Bearcats gathered again on March 19, 2011 in Tempe for yet another picnic.  Tess Ozuna '69, who must have been taking notes, had this to say about that:
