Collecting Memories

By Bruce Felps

A trio of teachers at Stonewall Jackson Elementary School erase their blackboards for the final time at the end of the school year.

Becky Hays, Virginia Barlow, and De Dee Hoops plan to call it a career. The Stonewall, J.L. Long Middle, and Woodrow Wilson High schools community plan a retirement reception — to take place at 6 p.m., May 12, in the Stonewall auditorium — for the educators.

Organizers hope to collect photos and other recollections from former students and their parents, along with PTA and professional peers, to commemorate the trio’s careers.

Send scanned photos and written vignettes to Melissa Alloway.

And shhh … don’t tell Barlow, Hays, or Hoops. It’s a surprise party.
