Any one who went through school during the 60 to the 80's remember the Curtis Family, Billie and Ethel Curtis raised 5 children who completed school at Lead Hill. Joy writes of their family "Mary Ethel Wade Curtis worked in the lunch room before she went to work in the garment factory in Harrison. She later became a Nurses Aid at the hospital and enjoyed helping her patients. My Dad, Billie B. (Squirrely) Curtis drove the school bus from the time my oldest sister started school until he retired. We were always the first ones on the bus and the last one off. It always seemed strange that during snowy days Dad got everyone home but us! There were lots of times that we had to walk to the top of the hill because the bus just could not make it."
