After my fifth grade graduation, I went home (following shopping at Target) and cried. I had made so many friends at my elementary school and I did not want to start middle school the next year. At the time, Brosville Elementary was my happy place, full of friends and teachers that made me happy. I have always been so sentimental about things ending that my parents would purposely plan exciting things for me at the end of the school year, like fishing trips, just so I could look forward to something else.

Dr Clifton W. Potter Jr, UL History Professor~

Last week while cleaning out one of the drawers in my file cabinet I found a spiral binder that one of my students gave me, but it has lain forgotten for years.  I kept it because the cover was misprinted.
