Mr. Myers was one of my many favorite teachers. I remember him calling each of us Miss or Mr. and your last name. Those were the days!!

When the students from Camden were placed in the DCHS school system we were lost for the first couple of weeks. Mr. Myers always made us or at least me feel welcome and took the time to direct us to where we needed to go. I never forgot that all the way through high school. He was also a great teacher and always called us pupils.
