The class of 1956 lovingly dedicates their First Lady to Miss Garnet
In an ungraded country school near Findlay, Miss Thompsonf started
her education. To enter high school one had to pass the Boxwell test, given
at the county seat. This was followed by a college preparatory course at
Miss Thompson graduated from Findlay College with a Bachelor of
Arts Degree and Otterbein College with a Master of Arts Degree. She
did post graduate work at the universities of Columbia, New York, Chicago,
Toledo, and Ohio State. Her teaching career took her to North Baltimore,
Wapakoneta, and Marion in Ohio, Richmond and Elkhart in Indiana.
Endearing love for and devotion to her mother and father have been
exemplified by Miss Thompson in the beauty of the hundreds of colorful
tulips which enhance the portals of her church. Each year they serve as a
living tribute to her parent's memory.

student, Joe Bristoll. Joe brought in six friends. The numbers grew so that
when Macomber was started and the boys moved, one hundred-sixty girls
were left with no place to go. Parents, the American Federation of Teachers,
and women teachers in the vocational field worked tirelessly until they
gained enough power and government help to build a girl's school. Miss
Thompson has shown both sympathy and understanding for the younger
generation. Through her thought of others, she established the Memorial
Book Shelf in Whitney's library to commemorate the memory of the dear
deceased of faculty and friends.
Thus, Whitney was born. Work, tears, and sweat make Whitney what it
is-it didn't just grow like Topsy. We honor Miss Thompson as one of the
