Teachers of the Year
iss Nadine Brown
"Quite a surprise!" exclaimed Miss Nadine Brown
when she was informed of being picked as one of the
teachers of the year by the seniors.
Miss Brown came to us eight years ago from Dixie,
Washington. A native of Washington, she was born
and raised in Prosser.
Miss Brown has attended Whitman College in
Walla Walla and the University of Washington. She
thinks Columbia High is one of the best, if not the
best, school in which she has taught.
"I believe that if a teacher shows she is sincerely
interested in each of her students, is willing to help
him, treats him fairly and creates a happy atmosphere
in the classroom, sheswill have splendid results both
in cooperation and work accomplished," she said,
summing up her practical teaching philosophy.
Miss Brown teaches Junior and Senior English and
is advisor to the Sophomore class. In the past she has
advised the Junior class for one year and the Senior
classes for four years.
"Go West, Young Man, Go West!" "DOGS It N0t "
r. Richard Kelly
Mr. Kelly was voted, for 1952, the most popular
male teacher in Columbia High School. His own
opinion about winning: "I never thought I would win
a popularity contest. It was a complete surprise to me."
When he was just a sophomore in high school, hc
decided to be a teacher. His decision was influenced
by the fact that he liked two of his teachers. After
graduation from high school he attended the University
of Idaho and did post-graduate work at both Wash-
ington State and the University of Arizona. His first
teaching job was in a small town in Idaho where he
was the principal of the local high school. Mr. Kelly
has taught school for sixteen years, eight of which
were spent in Richland. He says he likes teaching
better every year, and has taught every subject except
commercial, music, and lHo-Ho!l home economics.
We are delighted by the Seniors' choice of the most
popular male teacher of the year. Congratulations to
you, Mr. Kelly!

"Take this letter, please," or "Type this
up, please," are some of the requests that
the office staff hears every day. They are,
as we all well know, three of the most impor-
tant workers in our high school. Without the
assistance of this efficient staff it would be
impossible to keep our student records intact,
to manage finances, or to cope with so many
of the emergencies that arise.
