    I remember a Mrs Midkiff as a teacher of 8th grade from Justice Elementary. I didn’t see her in the pics. I went to Central after 7th grade, but I believe I could have recognized her.

    • Bob Piros says:

      Fred, maybe some of the teachers
      didn’t want to be in the photos.
      There are 24 teachers shown &
      35 Homerooms.
      Hope that you can help ID some of
      the students.

  6. Bob Piros says:

    Thanks to all of you who have made
    comments about your classmates photos.
    It took a few of us working together 6 months
    to ID the photos. The work couldn’t have been
    done without the wonderful memory of Jean Smith.
    Please help out & ID the photos by putting down
    the row & number & whose class they were in.

  9. Fred Eiland says:

    My Mother, Helen Eiland, taught at the school. She’s in the faculty photo here. 1960 was the year my family moved from Logan to El Paso, Texas. I still have an uncle who lives in Logan and I go back to visit with him every couple of years. I remember Mr Marushi well.

  10. Paul Sammons says:

    All gone now. i was back in Logan a few years ago when they demolishing the building. I attended 1963-66 (LHS Class of ’69). It was sad to see the building that held so many memories go away. But like so many things in life…it had its day.
