April Tannahill took a few more years to graduate from Radford, just like many others who started out in the seventh grade.  April chronicled, via camera, many moments at Radford and at her house.  She was popular then with mainlanders and locals alike.  One thing WebMama always thought was that April was from a military family because she spoke the King’s English, never any pidgin (which the rest of us did).  In 2003, April shared that she was a local girl, but her parents never tolerated anything but perfect English.  She shared much more, but that’s for her to tell.


The best thing is that April identified names and places!
