It has been ten years since Frances Ellerbe graduated from Heathwood Hall, but she remembers certain things as if they happened yesterday.  Of course, as a “lifer” who spent 14 years on the Heathwood campus, Frances has a lot of great experiences to recall!  There was Miss Susie’s kindergarten class, participating in the PEAK outdoor program, playing the flute in the band, and remembering headmasters Bob Shirley and Steve Hickman.  Frances especially appreciated the continuity of getting to...
