Letter: Forrest for school board

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

In 1990, my late husband, Jeff, and I returned to live part-time in Mathews. We had lived, worked and raised our children in Atlanta, Ga., for 52 years, but families, old friends and the beauty of Mathews drew us back.

We had both been graduates of the Mathews High School Class of 1942. When I think of the teachers who touched my life in those years my thoughts turn to Mrs. Bernice Rowe White, Mrs. Preston Brown Twigg and Mrs. Maxine Morgan Crockett; not only teachers, but mentors and lifelong friends. We were always proud of the education we received in Mathews County and indebted to the people at all levels who made it possible.

After we returned we tried to express this gratitude by supporting the students and teachers who were then doing their best to continue the great reputation of the Mathews County Public School System. There were no politicians involved—just good, solid citizens serving at all levels out of their sense of responsibility.
