Wilma Helgeland

Wilma Helgeland at the 2007 Reunion
One of several times that Mrs. Helgeland (Wilma) caught me talking or passing a note during class, she stopped, burned a hole right through me with those eagle eyes of hers, and said, "Bonnie Mack......what you DO thunders so loudly I cannot hear what you ARE!" I wanted the floor to open and swallow me. Believe it or not, I had occasion to quote her more than once with my children. She could certainly make you feel like $.02 waiting for change, but the best teacher I ever had.....bar none. :)

Bonnie Mack, '60
