Cats, Diamond and Snuggles, at the 10-year reunion, but her
Classmates.com profile in 2002 says "Pets: None." What
happened to Diamond and Snuggles?!

The senior girl of this
issue is Barb Yerger. Barb plays a very important role in the music
program here at Mount Penn. She is captain of bandfront, sings in the
chorus, and plays the piano for the band. Not only did she play in the
band, but she accompanied almost all of the musical acts in this year’s
variety show. Barb is also active in NHS, Y-teens, UN, Science Club, and
is president of ETA.
Barb also participated in Girl’s Volleyball and also
likes to play tennis. In her spare time, Barb enjoys reading and playing
the piano. Her favorite class is Biology.
After Barb’s graduation, she is planning on attending
Eastern College, majoring in Biology Secondary Education and to find a
career in teaching.
This year’s Christmas Concert was held on December 18.
For the first time the concert combined the efforts of the high school
and the elementary school. This was done to generate a larger audience
and to give elementary students and parents a chance to see the high
school’s music program.
The participants included the elementary band and
chorus, the junior high chorus, the senior high band, and chorus. The
cheerleaders were also featured in a dance to the “Reindeer Rock.”
The accompanists for the chorus numbers were Amanda
McGuire, Missy Oberhauser, and Barbara Yerger.

picture - why is Barb's profile clearly in the picture? Did anyone else
Did you know that Barb transferred to Mt. Penn
from the Reading School District?
According to her Classmates.com profile, Barb's
political views are "Ultra-conservative," and in her free time
she enjoys "Arts, movies, reading, sleeping, spending time with her
family, sports, surfing the Internet, traveling, watching TV, and
working on her hobbies."
On 5/04/02, Barb was at the 16-year Class
Dinner at 3rd & Spruce with her husband and two sons. It turns
out that Barb lives within walking distance of me. In fact, I've
probably walked our dog by her house numerous times over the last few
years. Also in attendance were: Suzanna (Post) Barlow and
son, Cathy (Ketcher) Rowley and family, Lori (Czarnecki LaPearl) and
family, Karen (Orth) Rimby and family, plus Bev and I.
Barb still sees Mrs. Haag at Country
Meadows, and says that Mrs. Haag is legally blind. Mrs. Haag was
one of Barb's favorite mentors back in high school.

BARBARA YERGER, a former Reading
High student, feels the student teacher
relationship is better here than at
Reading. She also thinks students at Mt.
Penn are more interested in academics
than in electives. Besides missing her
friends, she also misses some of the
many electives Reading has. Barbara is
an active chorus member and is still
getting used to our small chorus.
