  • I graduated in 1959. My major was Pre-Nursing. I was very fortunate to have wonderful teachers and receive a great education that I have used well throughout my life. Even though I did not continue in the Nursing field, I have served others for many years and done well. My hope is that the trend continues, turning young adults into college graduates and good community people, no matter the field they choose.
