This is Mr. Washington and Mrs. Waters,  who stopped by for a visit today.  Both are alumni of the Charles Young Elementary and Browne Junior High Schools on the Educational Hill campus in Northeast.  We had a lovely time talking with them (and learning from them) about the Educational Hill schools and teachers, including Ms. Burke - a strict disciplinarian that taught her students how to clap, and Principal Stinson - who is the reason why Mr. Washington “still cannot walk on the left side of a hallway.”  They also reminisced over their days growing up in Langston Terrace.  Ken enjoyed taking them on a tour afterwards.  I was happy to spend a part of the day listening and learning some DC school history from “the horse’s mouth,” so to speak.
They are holding a picture of the May 1954 Kindergarten Class from Charles Young Elementary School.
