Lou became the principal of Parkview School in Pueblo in 1960. On the first day that he met with the teachers, he talked with Dorothy Ritchey who had been his 3rd grade teacher in 1931-32. As they chatted, Mrs. Ritchey said to him as her new boss, "I sure hope I was good to you!"
Lou wrote about her: "She was one of my most remembered teachers and still one of the best liked teachers on the staff, so all went well. After she retired, we continued to exchange Christmas cards until I received a card from her husband informing me that she had passed away."
And do you realize that those little third graders pictured
above are now close to 50 years old!
