Although I was in the NHS Class of ’71, I was in 7th grade when you were a freshman at West. I, too, have fond memories of learning to stand up straight, don’t lock your knees, and sing from my diaphragm. Fond memories of singing the Star-Spangled Banner over the intercom in the morning, hardly ever singing the first verse. She always wanted folks to know there were 5 other verses!
I recall making the album, “WOW!” I think I still have it packed away somewhere. “Cool Water” was my favorite, of course.
She brought some discipline to my life, and made me a better singer than I thought I could ever be.
Thank you, Miss Kennedy!
