Please click on "original" below to see the image at the largest size. Thank you to Cecil C. Curry for contributing this great image of his Kindergarten class full of great looking youngsters at Morningside Elementary. Cecil has the big grin on the far left side. His attractive teacher was Miss (Marilyn?) Belland, previously identified as Miss Ballard and as Miss Eaton, on the right side. Thank you to Harvey Kasow (far left in the back row behind Cecil) for the name correction.
Cecil was born in 1936 and went to Morningside Elementary, Horace Mann Junior High and Edison Senior High, graduating in 1954. He left Miami in 1961 and now lives in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
Harvey says that Miss Belland was a wonderful human being and that he is black haired kid behind Cecil in the photo. Harvey says that his first grade teacher's last name was Eatman, second grade was La Roque, fourth grade was Parker, fifth grade was Mosely, and sixth grade was Virginia Gilchrist. He also says "For the life of me, I can't remember the third grade teacher." He says that the Principal was Chlotilde Faust, not one of his favorite people because she always told him "Harvey, why can't you be like your sister?"
