Title Remembering
Description REMEMBERING Reva T. Jensen Senior Division Honorable Mention Personal Recollection 1 bad to live to be 90 before taking inventory of my life and to ponder, to evaluate, at times regret, and to be thankful for those who were instrumental in molding my character and inspiring me to do more in the days that were to follow. My thoughts took me back to my school days in Manti, where every teacher from Grade School through High School left a goal for me to emulate, a step to follow along life's timeless path. Liz Frischknecht, plain, stern and disciplined, left her mark of promptness and truthfulness. Zina McCallistor taught me humility. When a young boy. nervous for fear of failure, vomited at the blackboard while trying to spell a word, she quietly took him to the teachers' lounge and returned with a bucket and a mop to clear up the mess while the students watched in silence. Ellis Johnson taught me to appreciate music, how to listen to the great artists, while Emery Epperson, who led the band, kept us all in step and dancing as the occasion required. At the same time Inez Clark taught me the notes on the piano, how to keep proper time and how to express one's feelings through music. I have never regretted the hours of practice and study, the results of which have remained with me for my lifetime. Willard Frischknecht left a desire to know history and appreciate our heritage. Every morning his words were. "What is the past is prologue." Maybe I didn't grasp the meaning then, but as the years passed the significance of his words sank in. Ethel Davenport taught me bow to cook, how to set a formal table and especially proper table manners. Mable Dyreng, also a Home Economics teacher, put the first needle in my hands and the many kinds of stitches I learned following her directions repaired many, many pieces of otherwise discarded clothing over the years. I cannot forget Laura Tuttle. An expert on making Chiffon hats that were the rage then. Her skills and charms brushed off on everyone in her class, and I wore one her creations alt summer long. M.W. Anderson believed in strict discipline, and if you did not heed his orders you paid dearly. While I may have feared him a bit, I admired his fairness and willingness to listen. Pete Peterson was much like Mr. Anderson. and while not quite so strict, but more open minded, both left indelible marks on my memory. 27
