Paonia HS honors Laura Clock
Above, Laura Schaefer-Clock, seated, celebrated her 101st birthday Friday, Sept. 6, surrounded by family at Paonia High School during the homecoming volleyball game. Ticking off the Clocks above, from the left, are Dot, Lynette, Kirby, Tiffany, Collete, Tyrell, Tia, and Clinton. Clock, a 1932 PHS graduate, was awarded the Rockwell Cup — which since 1908 has gone to outstanding graduating students. Clock’s cup was lost in a fire on Dec. 5, 1941, just two days before the attack on Pearl Harbor. At Friday’s homecoming football game, Laura was presented with a new Rockwell Cup and a bouquet by cross-country runners Taylor Polson and Jason Sturgis.
