I was a student at GCHS from 1964 to 1967, I attended 2 other high schools, my time at GCHS was the best experience. I didn't want to leave, because the teachers were so attentive. My stepdad was transferred, so my family and I moved. I wish my children could have been educated at the canyon. If I had a chance to return to the canyon, I'd be ready today. Jane Dobson Miller
