Do Not Touch Jean Sternig

Back in 1962, before the days of school computer labs, etc., BCI received a new spirit duplicator - a wonderful technological step up. The dealer planned a training session after 4 pm for teachers, so Principal Jean Sternig put a sign on it to leave it alone.

The 6 teachers, as usual, gathered during morning recess in the grade twelve room to chat, plan events, etc. "Hoosh" walked in and read aloud without any pauses, the sign on the new duplicator. "Do not touch Jean Sternig." He then said ,"Who the Hell would dare?" He survived, but barely. He loved living on the edge.

This was contributed by Fred Buglas who taught Social Studies at BCI.
