  • Modale Girls - Class of 1946, Identification          
    Identification contributed by Don Coffin. He writes, "I was looking on the web for photos of Modale and came across the posted photo of Jean Vittitoe and classmates. I was in Jean's graduating class (1946), and 6 of the ladies shown were my classmates. The other two (Alice John and Betty Rief) graduated a year later in 1947. These ladies look just as I remember them. I left for college after I graduated and never returned to Modale or saw any of these folks again."
