Tell us about your most unusual meeting with a Priory person

I was in New Mexico about 15 years ago in a supermarket, checking out, I was writing a check and the person behind me recognized my name on my was Jan Penso - small world from JA to the Southwest of US!  He and I stay in touch, our circle of friends sometimes cross at a big party.

What do you think of the Priory Website?

Stephen what a great job, I think the yearbook page is so creative and the most fun!! When I look at the pictures, it takes me right back and I can see myself playing long ball and in the big science classroom that had the chart of elements on the wall, the biscuits and fudge we could buy at recess..., building the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, and tons of horrible math!
