I was found in Facebook this week by my wonderful childhood friend, Linda Bagwell Kennedy. We were Brownies together!

Alas, my family moved to Beaumont and I started sixth grade there, graduating from Beaumont High School in '63, and Rice in '67. For about nine years, I lived in Saudi Arabia and so enjoyed the travel opportunities. I lived a number of years in Houston and moved to Whidbey Island, WA, in 1998. It is beautiful here and I'd love to have classmate visitors!

I'm thrilled to see names in this site that were part of my early days. If any of you have class pictures to share from that time, I'd appreciate it, as I don't seem to still have mine.

School Story:

I started school at Cambridge in Miss Espy's class, in a small building across the street from the main school building. Betsy the Collie would come into the classroom sometimes, to check on her owner, Georgann Harker. Second grade was Mrs. Felty in the main building, and learning to square dance. Woodridge was open for third grade, with Mrs. Wade, and the art of fountain pens. Fourth grade was Mrs. Lovell. Fifth grade was Mrs. Johnson. She said we did not have to memorize the times tables past 9!

I was a member of Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church until sixth grade and knew Jimmy from those years at church and school.  Jimmy was always kind and considerate, and I have thought of him over the decades for that quality.  I'm very sorry to hear this sad news.

So glad you were found and are now on our site. I had Miss Hill for third-grade there at Cambridge and I think she is still alive and attends the teachers luncheons. I think. We also used to slide down the fire escape on the side of Cambridge. I don't think they let you do that anymore. Because if they did, I would still try it.
