Proudest Moments of My Life: When my children were born

Things I Would Like My Classmates to Know:  Worked at the Department of Education upon graduation from Winthrop. I was the first white teacher in an all-black school in 1969- Orangeburg County. Lived in North, SC for 10 years, where my children were born. Then  moved  to Columbia in 1977 so my second child could attend the School for Autism. I became involved in the American Society for Autism where I served as State President. My son has been a joy in my life.

I am happy with each phase of my life. I learn something new every day. I enjoy pulling from memories and friendships of the past. The Class of ’64 continues to be a big part of my life.
