About the community:

Thank you to Omar Kekia who wrote: Nice page and it brings nice memories of our PCV teachers in Eritrea. Ms. Nancy Williams [Wilment?] served in Keren in 1966 and she taught me English in grade 8. Ms. Gloria, whom I cannot remember her second name now, also served in Keren about the same time. She taught me Biology in grade 7. Ms. Betty also taught in Keren (1966) and she was teaching English, but she did not teach me. They were in Keren about the same time as Ms. Catherine, but a year or two earlier than Ms. Joanne. I hope you will find this info useful. Regards,
