Inseparable "Pals"

this picture appeared in the Post Telegraph in Princeton in 1940. Left to right are Margaret Shroyer Logan, Josephine Girdner Applegate, Virginia Haggard Fray, and Phyllis McKay Overton, all of Mercer, who were inseparable pals. The article stated "that all have proved outstanding scholars while attending the Mercer Schools and have received honors. Phyllis finished her high school work in 3 years and has been an honor student each year. Virginia was valedictorian of the 1939 senior class, and in 1938 her name was engraved on a bronze plaque for being best "all-around" student of the school. Josephine has served as drum major of the Mercer High School Band, proving herself unusually capable in this capacity, and is an honor student. Margaret made the second highest grade in the test given for students to determine who would represent the school in the Student Assembly in Jefferson City. She is also an honor student."
Margaret Logan sent this information to The Mirror. She says that they still get together occasionally. Margaret lives in Indianola, IA & spends winters in Key Largo, Fl. she was married to Max Logan who died when he was 45 years old. She has two sons, Randy and Bruce, and one daughter, Donna, and a step-son, Jerry, who has died.

I was doing some research on my own family history and stumbled upon your blog and this blog post. Virginia Haggard Frye is my grandma. Thanks for posting this old newspaper clipping of her - it was neat to see a photo of her from so long ago!
