“Kathy Shepherd Martin was our first classmate to receive a graduation diploma at the May 1964 commencement ceremonies as we were partners when we led the processional out of the old main high school building to the outside event. I had the privilege to befriend Kathy and her family through her long and close association with my deceased spouse Helen Grace Barker. I send my most sincere condolences to her husband Bill Martin and their family as well as Kathy's brothers and sisters.”
