School Reviews

I graduated from St. Joseph's Commercial H.S. in 1949 and to this date I still have memories of the school, still look through my Parmentier yearbook and remember the girls and teachers I had. I also remember the 10 story building we were in and the great education we got from all of the Sisters. I am now going on 83 years old and still remember shorthand and typing classes which I eventually gained my employment as a secretary in all upstanding and respectable positions. Thank you, St. Joseph's Commercial. Sincerely, Faith A. (Schellhorn) Schildt
