Miss Wholey, was one of the precious people who
signed my autograph book at my graduation in June 1968. Here is her
autograph. It is safe to say that Miss Wholey was every student's dream.
She was very, very nice to us, while upholding all the fine standards that
were the John Story Jenks Elementary School. What Miss Wholey was known
for were class trips. She would take a class on a trip to a museum, park
or other place of interest, and do so often. And the kids knew it, loved
it and loved Miss Wholey.
Miss Wholey actually lived rather close to my home
in Germantown, Philadelphia, on the 100 block (east) of Tulpehocken Street.
Miss Wholey was so nice that I actually made one of those volunteer efforts
to come to school the day after the last day of school to help the teacher
pack up. I got paid $5.00, (big doin's back then). I don't know that it
is possible to have a better elementary school teacher than Mrs. Wholey.
