I attended Solomon School in 1951 & 1952 and the teacher that gave me the drive and interest for education was Mr. Venneberg. He was the FFA Instructor at that time. He taught us the many ways of a farmer and give us many tips on what we might face in our future. Mr. Clyde was one of a kind! Its a shame that we don't have more of his caliber as he was not only a teacher but a friend too! I'll never forget the weekend Eddie Bell and I had a sow trying to have her babies, and things were just not happening. We called Clyde, and his instruction was for us to reach in their and pull the babies out. At fifteen years old, after a lot of discussion and reluctance we finally did and saved the babies. It was a memory I'll never forget. Mr. V you'll always be in my wonderful memories and I'm sure that God will have a special classroom for you in heaven...…….. Ron Jolley

So many fond memories of Clyde! When I last saw him a few years ago — when he was mowing his lawn, he recalled vividly all the high school exploits of myself and my friends back in 1965-66. We all respected him as our teacher and principal but also considered him a friend. He was a role model for us all. My sympathies to Marianna and her family. Jim Taylor
