Yearbook brings comfort to mom on college visit
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
While accompanying her 18-year old son on a visit to one of his prospective college choices, Regnier came across some of the school’s old yearbooks from 1942. Inside? Pictures of her grandmother, who had attended the school and unbeknownst to Regnier, even been in a sorority.
It was a special moment for Regnier, bringing back memories of her grandmother and allowing her to learn things she never knew, and even gave her the feeling that her grandmother would be there to watch over her great-grandson at the school.
That is the power of the yearbook.
