Who's in First?

Floanne "Bunny" Apa Nitsch was kind enough to share this First Grade photograph taken at
East Ward school in about 1951. It's the latest of several class photographs we've begun collecting from Chadron Public Schools over the years.

Many of these youngsters went on to graduate with the CHS Class of 1963. Teacher Myrtle Forbes is standing at right. You'll likely need to click on the photo to see a larger image, or you can visit our Chadron Public Schools Gallery and select an even larger image from the menu

We need help identifying many of these folks. So send us an e-mail with your thoughts, or you can just leave them in the Comments link below this posting. Those who can be identified include:
