When people say teachers can make a difference there is no doubt Marilyn Fournet is proof. I wasn't an academic high achiever and certainly had my share of discipline in high school. But in Mrs Fournet's English class I found my love for words, poetry and literature. It was her passion for teaching English, reading and poetry that made a lifetime impression on me. She will be missed and remembered by me as a role model.

Mrs.Fournet was the best literature teacher. We read current novels and had great discussions. I was very fortunate to have her as a teacher twice. Rest in Peace Mrs. Fournet. Mellie B.
