It was 1983 and I was a wide-eyed freshman at Bolton High School who'd just been invited to her first high school dance. Knowing nothing of formal attire, Ms. Alice ushered me into Patricia's closet and gave me a crash-course in teen dance do's and don'ts. I got several dresses from that closet over the next four years, always with a touch of Ms Alice's wisdom. She was a remarkable lady and I am blessed to have known her.

Mrs. Sparks was my physical education teacher in Providence HS. She encouraged me to participate Freshman year when I was too shy to do so. She was patient and understanding. I appreciated her help.

Mrs. Sparks was the ultimate professional educator. I had her for high school PE, and then I had the honor of working with her when I taught at ASH. She gave all who came in contact with her a warm feeling because she always cared about her students and fellow teachers. I know her family and hundreds of former students will miss her. Thanks for the memories! Anita Hebert Kerry
