James C. Adams

bulletAs far as favorite teachers, I guess that I would have to say J. T.
Wiggs, the Vocational Agriculture teacher.  Though I only took one year
of vo ag, He always was an inspiration, even in the years after we were
long gone from high school.
bulletThe next would have to be Troy Roberts.  His chemistry, physics,
algebra, trig, and solid geometry classes presented ideas and challenges
that still intrigue to this day.  Although I am not good at any of the
mathematics, I still have a deep interest and a passion for all
