Mrs. Mazel Kemp

To teach is to touch a life forever. Wow! Is that a true statement. MANY years ago a YOUNG me was lucky enough to have Mrs. Mazel Kemp as my home economics teacher. Very stern but made learning fun and interesting.
Everyone knows that teenagers think 40 is OLD. I don’t remember Mrs. Kemps’ age but I can remember thinking WOW…..when I get old I hope I am as smart as she is.
I remember often she would speak of her husband Ralph and I can just hear her telling us what was proper and not so proper!!! Like holding hands in public was certainly NOT proper!! Am I old or what? I can also remember being teachers pet. I was going to be a beautician and she loved me “practicing” on her hair!
Cooking was my favorite part of her class and sewing my least favorite. Sewing meant precise and perfect measurements. Cooking is a creative art form. Remember….recipes are a great place to start but you can adjust them to suit your family. Take away a little onion and ad a little salsa. Substitute apples with pears. Cooking is fun and Mrs. Kemp taught me to share the fun I learned in her class at Grady High School MANY years ago.
I wish she were here to tell me she’s glad I went on to become a good cook because often I have thought to myself……..I think Mrs. Kemp would be proud of me. I listened, I learned and I remembered how much fun her class was and today I can tell you……to teach is to touch a life forever.
Mrs. Wanda Walker
In honor of Mrs. Wanda Walker……..every once in a while life sends a special person your way. Miss Wanda and I met through our love of gospel music and our love of one fine young man our pastor Matt Dibler. Wanda and I had both been touched by tragedy and through Matt’s beautiful songs and wonderful messages we learned that something good always comes from something sad. Matt lost his mom to cancer about the time I lost my mother and husband and Miss Wanda lost her husband. We “adopted” each other and have spent many hours talking, visiting and smiling just knowing that God does have a plan and through His plan we are now “family”.
