Gail Morrison, like Mr. Whalen, graduated from Groveton and works at the school now.
In 1965, we were interested in getting through school, most of us, or some of us through college. It was our goal in life. Now it seems people aren't really concerned about getting through school. Attitudes have changed. In my day there was one central administration that you went to. There were no upstairs offices. Some of the teaching methods have changed. Back then we had lectures and the students couldn't roam around the halls. We had to go and be in our classes when we were supposed to be. Of course we didn't think it was odd, and we didn't think about protesting.
I needed a job so I came here, it was exciting, it was very interesting to come back here and see how it changed. I was lucky that they hadn't moved yet into the new school because then I wouldn't've found it. When I found I was going to be working with some of my former teachers, I was rather nervous at suddenly going from the student point of view to an equal basis.
