In the early 1970s, Rensselaer Central High School had a Future Nurses Club with over 100 members at one point in 1971. Officers of the club in 1971 are pictured above (L to R) Rita Messman, president; Kay Foulks, treasurer; Sharon Yeoman, vice-president; Debbie Phegley, secretary; Kris Spurgeon, chairman. Did these women become nurses after graduation? If anyone has information on the whereabouts of these officers, please contact the Republican with the information. Photo provided.
