I am in the 3rd row, 2nd from the right and my name was Joyce O'Dell.
Miss Hollingsworth and I kept in touch until her
death, with a few years of time with no communication until the last 5 years of
I can name a lot of these students but one should be mentioned -- Rex Bowyer.
He is in the fourth row down, second from the right (Roger Beverage is the
first on the right.)
Rex has stayed in my mind for many years. He
died in Vietnam. I heard he'd been wounded and was being sent home when
the helicopter he was in was shot down. Never forgot him.
