Miss Jill Corey
Class Reunion - 1978
In 1978, Jill attended the 25th-year reunion of her Bell-Avon High School class of 1953.  Also in Avonmore at the time was Chuck Scarborough (right), who spent much of his youth in Avonmore and went to the same school Jill attended.  He too was destined to achieve celebrity status.  Chuck joined the NBC television news staff  in New York in 1974 and subsequently anchored the evening news on WNBC, Channel 4, NBC's flagship station in New York City.  He presently holds the distinction of being the nation's longest serving news anchor, and you can read much more about Chuck's distinguished career by clicking here.  Chuck's grandfather practiced medicine in Avonmore, and it was he, the Speranza family physician, who presided over the delivery of Norma Jean, the youngest member of that family, into the world on September 30, 1935.  The gentleman on the left in the photo above is Karl Foster, class of 1934 graduate of Bell-Avon High School.
