Friday's Faces from the Past - Agnes' Graduation
As we celebrated graduations this month, I thought of these pictures of my grandmother. Agnes Elizabeth Speck graduated from Monessen High School in 1933. I don't know if this was taken near her home or who took the picture. They were living at 228 Donner Avenue in Monessen, PA at the time. At Monessen High School, Agnes was in the Glee Club, participated in operettas, and represented the school at a national speech competition. Agnes later went to Douglas Business College in Charleroi, PA and worked at Page Wire and Steel in Monessen. Agnes went to nursing school when she was 40's and worked as a nurse after her children were grown.
