    Marjorie guided me through my first teaching assignment in Ocean Springs in 1968. She was an outstanding professional who convinced me to continue in the field of teaching. I followed her advice, going on to teach at many different places, finally retiring as an elementary principal. Through all that, I thought of her often. Her influence lives on in the thousands of lives she, her protégées and students have touched.
