Geez, that coulda been Pleasant View Elementary, Pleasant View jr. High, Pleasant View High, or Maybe after 1955, Pueblo County High School . .

The Old Pleasant View Elementary, etc. is still located at the corner of 25th lane and Highway 50 East.

Orrrr, later on, there was both North and South Mesa Elementary Schools . . but I don't think Sam Ingo was the principal at either . . If you went to North or South Mesa . . and can't remember it . . see your family doc . . you're too young to be forgetting that . .

Lessee, My wife is almost 50, she lived on 25 and a Quarter Lane and Everett Road, sez she went to North Mesa, Sam Ingo WAS the principal, and if you went to kindergarten at "the Little Red Schoolhouse, My mother was your teacher . . and in all probability a Mrs. Genova (there was about 5 Genovas who drove schoolbusses for Dist. 70) is the person you're referring to . .

Outside of that . . I know nothing . . .

The last name of the person on the top looks like a familiar name- to some people I knew in Cheyenne Wells. Don't know if they are the same folks or not.
