In memory of our classmate Glenna Fitch Brooks
Clay High School Class of 1955
January 20, 2021
Mrs. Brooks was my first grade teacher at Garfield Elementary during the 1963-64 school year. I still have our class picture from so many years ago. Mrs. Brooks never lost her smile or the gleam in her eyes. Mrs. Brooks was a wonderful role model for me in my career as a teacher and school administrator. She will be forever one of my favorite teachers.
