Remember Louise Hoyt?



When did you attend Priory?


Who was your most unforgettable teacher?

Mr. Bourke. I would call him bodacious! He'd sit on top of his desk, poked fun at me since I was a "cheeky American". Recall him saying "damn" in class. How shocking that was to a 12 year old innocent.

Who were your best friends at school?

Sally Hiller, an American who shared my birthday. Susan Shipp, a Texas girl like me. Marie...can't recall her last name. Corinne...I think is the Corinne Martin on this site. Also girl with last name of Compton (?).     


Who are you in touch with now?

Only just e-mailed Corinne Martin recently.


 Who would you like to trace if we could?

Sally Hiller & Susan Shipp


What's the wildest thing you ever did at Priory?

Wow! It began when my English teacher sent me up those creaky mahogany stairs to report to Headmaster Fowler. Being the "cheeky, impertinent American" that I was, my metal taps on the heels of my penny loafers made a terrible racket during my approach. Because of what my teacher had said to me that day, my father pulled my sister and me out of school for three days. Mr. Fowler sent a messenger on bicycle to our house asking for a meeting with my parents. We were back in school right after that meeting. Thoroughly enjoyed my short vacation!


Who was the 'craziest' person during your time at Priory and why?    

Can't recall his name. Jamaican in one of the older forms who was a girl-chaser. He used to pull my ponytail!


Where do you live and what do you do now?

Born in Dallas, Texas. Living now in San Antonio, Texas. Just turned over 20 years with State Farm Insurance.


Tell us about any significant others

Married in 1967. My husband is a retired Naval officer. Two sons, Kelly 27 and Scott 25. Three cats, Jessica, Riley and Norton.


What do you think of the Priory Website?

I am so happy to have found this site! I have told so many friends about my time in beautiful Jamaica and at Priory. Could you supply a listing of all students who attended and the years they were there? (Stephen's comment - sorry but right now I can't do that. It's a good idea for the future though!)
