I took this picture (below) a week ago today during a brief visit to my hometown of Harvey, N.D.
I’ve long realized the education I received as a Harvey Hornet was superior, thanks to an excellent administration — anyone remember Superintendent B.M. Hanson? — and faculty. My favorite teacher was Clyde Boyko, but there were many other good ones (Art Lies, for example, the only teacher from that era I’ve found on Facebook, who taught music and German (awarding me a D when I assumed I would be receiving an F in that difficult course).
Those who know me in 2017 might not guess I participated in sports: track, wrestling, and, believe it or not, football. The photo above is of the HHS team in front of what is now the junior high school.
No. 89 — that’s me.
