Mrs. Schneid's Class of 1972

Thanks to Bob Magee (pictured in photo) for sending this cool class shot. I've never had Mrs. Schneid, but I heard she was a nice lady. Any other photos out there? Please email them to me. Click your mouse on this photo to enlarge. 

Here's Bob reflecting on his days at Memphis...

"I attended Memphis from 1971-75 (3rd-6th grade). Was at Mark Twain K-2nd grade. My favorite memories are Mr. Varga's gym classes, especially the high jump contest and 60 yard dash races. Also, Mr. Sopka sending us down into the basement to get the paddle for swats, all the teachers had him as the disciplinarian guy".

Thanks for the class picture and the memories, Bob!

Mark William Hollan

As many of you know, I've dedicated this site to Mark William Hollan, who lived a street over from me at 4008 Muriel Avenue. Mark and I attended Memphis during the same time. In fact, we were both in Mrs. Bridges 6th grade class. With a little help from his sister, Liz, I will be posting a few mementos from Mark's Memphis School days. Pictured above is the home that Mark and his family lived at.

Mark passed away at a young age of 17. He was a really funny kid and did well at Memphis.
