For the last 37 years, Sam and Barb Colvin have tried to pass along to their students the inspiration they received from their own teachers in Bloomfield 40 years ago.
"When I was in high school, I had a really great home ec teacher," Barb said. "I was lucky because I knew before I even left high school what I wanted to do, and I've never changed my mind."
Sam, Barb's husband of 37 years, said the same thing of his own teachers at the small northeastern Nebraska school.
"I had some really great teachers and enjoyed school," he said. "I made my decision early, too, and never really wavered from that."
