Beaver Island Trivia...

Last Week's Question:

Did you know that the first three lay teachers to teach with the Dominican Sisters in the current Beaver Island Community School were male? Can you name the first two regular education and the first special education teachers in a school mostly taught by nuns?

Connie Wojan was the winner of this week's trivia contest. She correctly identified the first three lay teachers on Beaver Island to teach in the current Beaver Island Community School building. Her answer was: Grant Hart, Joe Moore, and Terry Hart. Although I was looking for the first three male teachers, Connie's answer was absolutely correct. The third male teacher to teach with the Dominican Sisters at BICS was John Murphy, Jr., a special education teacher. Joe Moore is still teaching at the Beaver Island Community School and has completed thirty years teaching in our school.

This Week's Trivia Question:

We are going to stick with the Beaver Island Community School for this week's question in honor of the BICS graduation coming this Saturday, June 9, 2007. There are three teachers currently teaching at BICS who graduated from Grand Valley State University. Can you name them? If you can add the year that each graduated, the first to email me the correct answer will win a summer subscription to Beaver Island News on the 'Net for the person of your choice.
