Blast from the Past / 1959: Before the school closed

In fall 1959, students in grades 5, 6 and 7 at Holy Trinity School in Nezperce lined up for their photo. At the school, three or four grades at a time were combined into one classroom, and teachers were Benedictine nuns from St. Gertrude's Convent in Cottonwood. Those pictured are (front row from left)Dennis Baldus, Jim Cash, Larry Braun, Wayne Lauer, Bob Schmidt; (second row) Mary Sue Albers, Joyce Reimers, Donna Dugger, Janet Langdon, Vicky Baldus, Barbara Wemhoff, Colleen Wemhoff, Tammy Schlader; (third row) Leanne Baune, Terry Baune, Ron Albers, Patrick Hagele, Bill Baldus, Pat Nau, Rich Jacobs, Ted Becker, Gerri Miller; (back row) Ginger Schlader, Suzi Baune, Mike Dugger, Nadine Schlader, David Hagele, Karen Beenders and Jeanne Jacobs, who submitted this photo. The school closed a few years after the photo was taken, and many of those pictured graduated from Nezperce High School in the mid-1960s.
