My prayers go out to the Nevins family. Take comfort and joy in all that Hanna Nevins brought to her family and many others.
Mr. Nevins, I especially offer my thoughts to you. In 1962 you asked me to help coach the St. Luke’s basketball team. Upon your learning my need for a job, as I pursued a career as a teacher/coach, you hired me to work at Wi Centrifugal. With that boost, I was able to continue my education. My journey as a teacher, graduating with a B.S. and M.S. in Education from U of WI -La Crosse and an Ed.D. (1976) from Northern Illinois University, resulted in a fifty one year (now subbing) teaching time. Married now, 52 years, with two children, eight Grands and three Great grands and living in Morris , Illinois I look at the Nevins family with the highest regard.
