Many stop by to visit the new campus...
It was great to see Trey Zamora '79 and his son Vinnie on campus this summer. Trey shared with us that he had recently been named Secondary Teacher of the Year in Donna, Texas! (He brought the plaque to prove it!) Trey reflected back on his fifth grade experience in the spring of 1976. One day Mr. Burgess told all of the students to be very quiet as he told them a secret. The students were to do as he told them. With no talking, they quietly left the building and walked to the outside of Edman Chapel where President Ford was arriving to address the Wheaton College student body. All of the students were able to see President Ford with all the Secret Service around him!
Leonard Mack '59 and Leonara (Mack) Swasey '62 stopped by in July for a tour of the campus. They paused for a photo with Mr. Clum, and enjoyed seeing what life is like for current students.
Speaking of our previous campus, Wheaton College has announced some plans for the property.
