The Big Horn 1959 Annual, Big Horn Wyoming

This information was compiled and submitted by Corenne Singer. Thanks Corenne!

Linda Harris presents Mrs. Garber with the Scrapbook of greetings from former students. W.W. DeJarnett, Everett Hasbrouck, Paul Garber and Mrs. Everett Berry.


After many years of living in the community, rearing her family, enjoying grandchildren, and teaching in the Big Horn School, Mrs. Vie Willits Garber decided to terminate her teaching duties. Her former pupils will always cherish her smile, words of encourgement, and sympathetic understanding. Her work was never so urgent nor the hours so long that she could not find an opportunity to help a student in distress. Many students will always regard Mrs. Garber as the teacher of the year, and wish to dedicate this yearbook in her honor.
