On last day of school at Pavillion today, retiring instructor saddled with extra duty

(Pavillion, Wyo.) – Today is the last day of school in Fremont County School District 6, and the last day with students for long-time history teacher Dick Quayle. Mr. Quayle has been teaching at Pavillion for 32 years and is retiring from the classroom. To mark this momentus occasion, several students from his class decided to put a history lesson into action.

Lincoln David of Pavillion and Bryce Hankins of Crowheart remembered a lesson from Mr. Quayle in which he quoted a state statute that requires a school to “provide feed, water, shelter and care for any horse that is along the road to school.”

On Monday after school, the two erected a temporary corral on the high school parking lot for their two horses. Today, Mr. Quayle was informed of extra duty he had to perform on this last day of school. That task, you ask? It would would be taking care of those two horses. And, naturally, he did.
