Martha Johnson Nevada Mo Hight School Reporter 1921

While researching Martha who was like a mother to me and my sister, Marilyn;I found these articles from Nevada High School Year Book 1921. I never knew Martha graduated from Nevada High School! I assume she graduated 1923 since she was a Sophomore in 1921.
