Kudos To Teachers

Gary Dorough wrote us about his wife, Becky Adams 71:

"Becky is too modest to write, but as her proud husband of 30 years, I would like for her ’71 classmates to know that she has recently retired after teaching 3rd grade for 30 years and was recently honored by a high school honor graduate by naming Becky the most influential teacher in her life. She acknowledged that Becky turned her on to mathematics back in the 3rd grade. Kudos to all elementary teachers out there as they are seldom praised for student’s high school and post-secondary academic successes! "

"Life is good! She can now enjoy her well deserved retirement! We are anxious to hear about plans for another GCM Reunion. GO Trojans and GO BRATS!"

Becky is currently recovering from surgery and has a good prognosis.
