Thank you to Alan Landros '70 who sent this December 18, 2009 email from Dave Thomson - we pray for the Lord's comfort for the family:
The Superintendent's Office was informed that Dr. Helen Price passed away today.
Dr. Helen Price was hired for the 1940-41 school year as a teacher at Roosevelt Elementary School. She worked in Division of Elementary Education as a special education teacher beginning in 1944 and then as the acting supervisor for the Nursery School and Child Care Program from 1946 through 1947. She went on a leave of absence for two years and resigned in May 1949.
Dr. Price was re-employed in September 1954 as a teacher at Luther Burbank Middle School. She became the VP and Dean of Girls in 1956 through 1967. At that time she transferred to BHS as an AP where she continued through June 1982 until she retired in July 1982.
Services will be held in January. As soon as that information is received, it will be sent out via E-News.
