Pam Getz was a sophomore at Hammond High School in 1965. Friends and classmates wrote all sorts of kind and loving notes in her yearbook, but somehow it ended up in the school’s locked vault that went unopened for the last few decades. On June 9, Superintendent Scott Miller and Dave Reyes, maintenance coordinator, opened the vault inside Hammond High School that had been locked since the 1980s.
During her first year teaching, Carol Huber taught high school English, night school and took classes herself to work toward a master's degree. That was in 1961. Today, 60 years later, she's teaching her last session of summer school, after which she will retire from the classroom entirely.
All students in the School City of Hammond will receive library cards from the Hammond Public Library thanks to a new partnership.
At the Morton High School graduation, Principal Greg Easton shared with the class of 2021 what he said is the secret to everything in life. Among half a dozen pieces of advice, he told them, "build great relationships." Easton, who was also the keynote speaker for the ceremony, thanked his family, friends and fellow administrators for their support over the past 36 years of his career — especially back in December and January when he was hospitalized for COVID-19. This was Easton's last year at Morton as he will retire this summer.
