AFTER 32 YEARS VETERAN RETIRES FROM TEACHING1
KEARNS. Retiring this year after 32 years with Granite School District is Eva May McAllister. Mrs. McAllister was born in Granger, the daughter of Samuel and May Arnold, and attended Monroe elementary, along with her four brothers and one sister.

Her teaching career began in the first grade at Madison elementary. She also taught at Woodrow Wilson, Garfield, South Kearns and David Gourley and for the last 15 years has been teaching at Academy Park elementary.
?My teaching years in Granite district have been both challenging and enjoyable,? Mrs. McAllister said. ?Each group of children were (sic) fun, special and different. I have very much enjoyed my years at Academy Park. It?s a very nice school and the teachers and principal were great to work with. I always have had pets in my room? she continued. ?Usually gerbils and guinea pigs, which my children always enjoyed and students from other rooms have also enjoyed coming in to visit them.?
Mrs. McAllister and her husband Ben live in Copperton. They have four children, two of whom (David and Virginia) are also teachers. Ben Jr. works at Kennecott and daughter Sally lives in Chicago. ?We also have 14 wonderful grandchildren.? Mrs. McAllister added.
The academy Park faculty and PTA honored Mrs. McAllister, who has been with the school since it opened in 1962.
