I was a student of Miss Drohan’s class of 1972. She was an inspiration to me then and her words guided me throughout my life. There was no finer teacher than Miss Drohan. I am sad to learn of her passing. She lives on in my heart. I extend my condolences to her husband and family. She will be missed.
