Today's photo is from Michaela Bonawitz.

Bonawitz wrote: “I am submitting this picture of the Fraser Street Elementary class of Miss Laura Heimbach from 1956-57. Miss Heimbach was my great-aunt and taught fourth, fifth and sixth grade during her 41-year career in the State College School District. She retired in 1965.

“Writing on the back of this photo lists the names of all but three of the students shown in the picture. There is also the number 5 written on the back of the photo, which I assume means a fifth-grade picture.”

Students in the front row, from left, are: Sammy Hawbaker, Mary Ann Fulcher, Bruce McAlpine, Steve Gentry, Drew Jeffrey, Bruce Latshaw, Holly Dalzell and Mary Ann Light.

Middle row: Pat Acheson, Linda Lucas, unknown, Tommy Coombs, first name unknown Williams, Anne Nearn, Bill Decker, Wilma Shaffer, Annell Kocher, Kenny Williams, Andy Ellsworth, Steve Bartlett and Nancy Harris.

Back row: Vicky Snyder, Blair Farrand, Vicki Tombros, Bobby Womer, Susan Hogan, Tommy Torkelson, William Mauck, Barbara Ascah, Bill Reiber, Beverly Walker and unknown.
