Thank you for a reply to my post.
My father, Richard Coon, is a member of your Alumni Association, as far as I know. He has attended a reunion at one point.
My parents spend part of the year in Florida, which is where they currently are. I called them to ask about the "dump sight", but cell phones are not their specialty, so it was tough to ask too many questions. However, my mother did mention they had attended a reunion and that they had some info on it at home, plus some names I could contact. lol Truthfully I'm not sure they understood that I just needed info on whether or not my dad remembered if their was a dump or not.
Thank you for the info on the school and entrance requirements. I do not believe my father was a "bad boy", but he had an older sister who was "the princess" in her parents eyes. My father was an accident who was a distraction. Knowing my grandmother, his mother, I am sure they "shipped him off" as soon as possible. MY father seems to have very fond memories or OMI and his best friend all his life (until he passed away), Owen Thorpe, was from OMI.
