Kinnie Knowles Pearce '57 has recently moved from Denver, Colorado to St. Louis, Missouri, where she now lives very close to her son. She looks forward to visiting West Chester several times a year to visit her mother, Alda Knowles, and to “see old-time friends who I know from Friends School Days, all those years ago!”
We were delighted to visit recently with Peter Furlong, who was in T. Kathy Bollinger's fifth grade at WCFS in 1989-1990. Peter is a musician who currently lives in Albany, New York and was in the area, so he stopped by! He remembered his time at WCFS as a happy and productive one...and remembered being particularly inspired by T. Rege. He was thrilled to know that T. Rege was, in fact, on campus and that he could see her! T. Rege recognized Peter immediately and they reminisced about concerts and a music festival from that year. Keep in touch, Peter!
