    I traveled with Evelyn, some other townspeople, Thiel faculty and students on a January break in approximately 1981. We lived in Saltillo, Mexico for three weeks, attending classes and cultural events. We stayed in the home of a Mexican family. At one point, Evelyn, Michael Pistolesi and I flew to Mexico City for some sightseeing. Evelyn had said that this was her first trip outside Mercer County, and there we were travelling on busses, some along with chickens, a wildly driven taxi and a bouncing prop plane … in another country! It was a memorable ‘study abroad’ for us. She was a real trouper and a lot of fun!

    Miss Kauffmann was my favorite teacher that I ever had. She instilled a love of learning and books in me that exists to this day. I saw her about 15 years ago and she knew me by name. An amazing woman, I loved her! Rest in Peace Miss Kauffmann

    Evelyn (Miss) Kaufman) was my First grade teacher at the old Columbia School in 1947/48. She was beloved by her students and filled many with a love of learning and reading. Even back then there was much competition to “get into” her class. I don’t know if there are many kike her in the classroom today. I hope there is

    My beloved first grade teacher 1960/61….what a gal. I saw her five years ago when I was in Greenville for my class’s 45th reunion. She was bright and cheerful even at 102! Miss Kaufman was truly one of a kind!
