Yes! Attending Reunion

I remember the butter cookies between the blocks of icecream for lunch, the best cooks in the world worked in the cafeteria at JA, being a future nurse, buying orange drinks across the street from JA, practicing in the summer at the JA field with the band, Rebelette practices, the Rebelettes marching during the football games, wearing the Rebelette uniform every Friday, the JA spring carnivals, hitchhiking to the basketball games with Renee Cook, etc. I remember the Rebelettes adding the rolling back of one shoulder to our marching routine. We thought it would be cool and sexy. We did that routine for a football game and Ms. Thomas our advisor was so upset. This is extremely funny now when you see what the girls are wearing and the routines they perform today.

School Story:

I remember Mrs. Robinson, a counselor at John Adams High School. I was sitting in the outer office crying because another counselor had just told me that I should try to get a job in a factory and I could not attend college. Then, Mrs. Robinson happened to come by and see me crying. She asked me what was wrong. I told her. She said. Stop that crying and come back tomorrow. I did not stop crying, but I returned to her office the next day. She had somehow enrolled me in a summer program at Ohio State University and I was to leave five days after graduation. Also, I had been accepted into Ohio State University for the Fall semester. I was amazed. In five days I was on a Greyhound Bus headed for The Ohio State University. I will never forget that woman.
