I attended Prologue in 1975 and graduated in 1978 the staff were wonderful not only a teacher, counselor and friend we all were like family. After graduating I went back in 1979 to work as the administrative Secretary for 3 years one staff member is my son's godmother, and I keep in touch with many staff and students we are all friends on Facebook I have attended staff funerals, weddings, family gatherings still to this day.
