1989
Distinguished Graduate
River Valley High School
Caledonia, Ohio
(I was the first person in the history of this small school in a rural area of Ohio to get her doctorate. However, even though there were only 88 students in the class of 1964 and fewer than half were women... three of us went on to earn our doctorates. It tells you a lot about the strength of this small farming community... and a changing culture that gave opportunity to women.)
