Rhoads Schools Classmates
“In March 2017, the Linda Mae Mahon Lema Foundation interviewed six graduates of the historic Rhoads Schoolhouse. Built in Sloughhouse in 1872, and in use until 1947, students from the first to the eighth grades were taught at the same time in this one-room school. The former classmates in our discussion were Betty Woolever, Melba Mosher, Joan Holt, Leo Fassler, Ray Martinez and Leslie Ostman.”
