Hi, Marlene and others

Actually, I do think I remember some of the freshman guys singing the praises of Miss Viets' approach to teaching English, however I have no first hand experience with that approach as I was in Mrs. Washburn's class.

Anyway, thanks for going through your 1957 yearbook; I was missing that one.

Don't know if any of these teachers are still with us or not, but in addition to the names you provided I found these faculty member names in the '58 yearbook whose obituaries are not on the '61 website:  E.F. Bender, Mariann Wasemiller, and Joann Thompson.

From the '59 yearbook, Eugene Nelson.

And from the '60 yearbook Rosella Ogg, Don Stenger, and Roberta Thomas.

I don't believe I had any of those teachers for classes, however.

I believe, E.F.Bender is listed on 61 site as Elmer Frederick Bender, someone from class of 61 can verify this info

Hi Marlene. This is Barbara Stucky Ratzlaff.  Yes, Rosella Ogg is very much alive.  She is a good friend and we are still in contact with each other.  She is doing great and looks fantastic!
