  • I went to Roosevelt High from 1972-76. I still remember the wonderful skilled nurse that was on duty at the time that I flipped up on the stairs and fell on my spine and was screaming! Instead of being an intellegent nurse nand calling an ambulance she had 2 boys carry me to the medical office. Then called my brother to drive me home. Now with arthritis and have spinal stenosis, multielevel nerve damage that disabled me since 1997 that I could not work any longer. But Roosevelt had a nurse that saved their financial butt! I don"t have nothing good to say about it!
