Wenonah Story:

Went to Wenonah Elementary in the sixth grade. We envied those going up the hill every morning to the Castle on the Hill. Made it there in 1957 and enjoyed every minute. Some of the most lasting friendships were made on the hill. Several of the most noted have passed on: Velna Henderson and John Luke who were voted the most popular in our junior year: Van Harris, Luke's uncle, best man in my wedding and all-around athlete: Odessa Williams who left us at an early age. Our experiences at Wenonah were made better because they were with us.
