For her outstanding accomplishments as a first through eighth grade teacher, Helen is recognized on the Donors’ Wall of Fame by her former student, Robert Christian.

According to Robert:

Sixty-five years ago, Helen (Thompson) Welliever taught school at District 72 in Nemaha Co., Kansas. She was my eighth grade teacher.  Thanks to her I graduated and went on to high school at Bancroft for two years then to Goff, Kansas for my last two years.  She was very athletic.  She would play ball with us and go sledding north of the school house in the winter.  I will always be grateful to her for being able to handle all eight grades in District 72.  She also taught other schools before and after 1934.

Helen (Thompson) Welliever began her career in a one room school house.  She taught all eight grades at District 72 in Nemaha Co., Kansas.
