In 1940 my Aunt Barb received her BA in Education for Nebraska State Teachers’ College in Wayne, Nebraska. She save the announcement, the program and mimeograph pages of the Commencement Week program with instructions on how to dress for the ceremonies and how to behave during them.
Quite an exciting time for a 22 year old farm girl from Wayne. I’m not sure of the timeline, but I think she went to Chicago to attend a business college after this. As far as I know she never taught school. Oh, the questions I wish I had asked her.
