JIM: Remembering Ovalene Foley Rexroat
Ovalene Foley, later Rexroat, was member of the Russell Springs High class of 1941, the first class to be graduated from the then new high school building, later used as the elementary school building for several years.
Not quite a decade later, classmate Elizabeth Hatfield (Wernery) put together a "Class of 1941 Review," published in the Russell County News in the April 27, 1950 edition.
Of Ovalene, Mrs. Wernery wrote: "[She] has to her credit an outstanding appeal as a teacher and housewife. Following graduation, she enrolled among the learned to realize her lifelong ambitions. Now she has added to her dreams, her husband, Atlee Rexroat, and darling Bonnie Lee. Their home, which they designed and decorated, is in the Fonthill locale." - JIM
