Jerry ??(vice principal, seated to left of flagpole)
Matthew Karlie (seated to right of flagpole)
Paye Gonmangbeh (spelling?, kneeling, far right)

    Great picture, great memories! Yes, that’s definitely Jerry Gbeonquoi. He was still vice principal when I taught math and science there from 82-84 and Paye was principal. Sam Yinni is on the far upper right. Sam and I worked closely together (science teacher also) and, as fate would have it I married his wife’s little brother. Good people.
