Memories:  I remember a tall, slim boy who they said was a Cheeney in the school system.  He wore corduroy slacks and light colored knit shirts.  What I recall is that he was very quiet and moved quickly in  order as he was told as we moved from class to class or from inside to outdoor activities.  Light haired and green or gray eyes.  fb
