"What this is all about" by Alan Lubke
Miss Ostrem, "Gloria Sawai" to the Governor General of Canada, was a popular teacher with her students at Farmington High School in Farmington, Minnesota. As a result, after her departure from our campus in 1956, she was meticulously tracked by the officer in charge of class reunions. When she became a famous, award winning author, that officer, one Bill May, "Farmer of the Year" to the population of Dakota County, Minnesota, organized a special homecoming in 2003.
