From a Teacher who will forever remain unnamed "son you will never amount to anything". Thanks for the motivation!
When I look back at the years at Wenonah, I remember the encouraging words; not from teachers but from fellow students. They saw in me what I could not see in myself. There was rarely a harsh word even when it was warranted. I remember very clearly over 250 names from those years; however, two stand out more than others for their kindness; Carolyn Robertson, and underclass mate, Alfra Dean Fisher. Emmett Bryant was a good friend as well as many others. I will forever give thanks to the Lord God Almighty for the experience.
