Brother Arnold Bakutis (1967)

Lots of memories of him.

Bro Leonard
Peter Robinson and C. Milazzo review spelling bee words with Bro. Leonard (1967?)

This brother's penmanship knocked me out. It was lovely! But up until my first term with him in the 7th grade I was a basic honor student;  then he knocked me out by holding me back one year because I was too immature, he said. I never liked or excelled in school since that failure. Blame him? Maybe I was immature, maybe just pissed off until I finally quit school altogether in 1969 - never getting past the 10th grade.
