Resurrection Catholic Elementary received a special visit this week from the infamous Mary Catherine Gallahue. Mary Catherine Gallahue was a teacher at RCES for over 25 years. She came to “Pass it on” to Katie Colville, the memorable Native American costume that she wore each year for Native American Day. The costume was made by former teacher Candis McDuff and painted by a former teacher, Mrs. Renee Criddle.
Although Katie has been an Eagle for many years, this is her first year with her own classroom. Katie is humbled that Mrs. Gallahue chose her, “I am very shocked that Mrs. Gallahue wanted ME to carry on her legacy. I will do my best to make her proud.”
Many of Mrs. Gallahue’s former students hope they are making her proud. Elizabeth Wilson, one of three from the Wilson family that Mrs. Gallahue taught in 1980’s, shared, “I will be forever grateful to her for expecting the best out of me. I’ll always want her to be proud of me.” Many of us hold fond memories of Mrs. Gallahue. Please share on our Facebook post your favorite “Mrs. Gallahue” story…..
