She was a nice person and great teacher. I learn how to sew my first vest in her class and learn what patience was. You will be missed. RIH

My deepest sympathy to the Bonds Family. I had Mrs. Bonds for Home Eco. (sewing) in my sophomore year. She was an awesome teacher. On one of our assignments, she held up a picture of a pizza and asked us to pick which topping we related to and why. After we all shared our choices, she was surprised that no one picked the onion! That was a funny moment! You'll be missed Mrs. Bonds!
