Billie Wright (Davis) (1961)

What a go-getter!!!  She was so energetic and full of great ideas.  I was her typing teacher and one of her junior class sponsors.  She was in the junior class play and became a special friend to the others in the car wreck of May 7, 1966, because of the junior class play.  If there had been a prom, which I tried to get for the kids, they would not have been on the road at 8:30 after the banquet.
