Olympic games are times of International celebration. In 1996, Jasper County Indiana got to share a little bit of that spirit as the torch relay passed through DeMotte, Rensselaer and Remington, on its way to the opening of the Atlanta games that July 19.
In the early 1970s, Rensselaer Central High School had a Future Nurses Club with over 100 members at one point in 1971. Officers of the club in 1971 are pictured above (L to R) Rita Messman, president; Kay Foulks, treasurer; Sharon Yeoman, vice-president; Debbie Phegley, secretary; Kris Spurgeon, chairman. Did these women become nurses after graduation? If anyone has information on the whereabouts of these officers, please contact the Republican with the information. Photo provided.
