Can you major in majorette?
Alumni stepped forward to name these NWU drum majorettes.
I received my Archways today and saw my sis! On the far left is Judy Johnson and the third from the left is my sister, Sharon Stevens, both of Polk, Neb. Between them is Kathy Klemme.

How surprised I was this morning when the mail came and my issue of Archways was here. I opened the pages and there on page 33 was my freshman roommate! The girls are four majorettes: Judy Johnson from Polk, Neb.; Sharon Stevens, Polk; Kathy Klemme, Big Springs; and Janice (Benge) Jorgensen (’60) from Benkelman. Actually, the yearbook has Sharon and Kathy reversed. Jan was my roommate on the third floor of Johnson Hall. What a joy to see this picture. Trivia—Burnie Terman (’58) and I met at Nebraska Wesleyan and married, had three children, one of which, Peggy (’85), met her husband, Paul Lackore (’86) at Wesleyan and now their two children, Evin and Ashlyn Lackore are students there.

I received the Archways today and immediately recognized the majorettes pictured in the Mystery Photo. Three were my sorority sisters. The picture from the left is Judy Johnson, Kathy Klemme, Sharon Stevens, and Janice Benge.

In looking at the last Archways I noticed several old friends from 1958 or there abouts. I don’t remember the name of the majorette on the left, but the second from left is Kathy Klemme Hanson, the next is Sharon Stevens Benson and Janice Benge. The three I could name are all Alpha Gamma Deltas as I was.

I found the picture on page 77 of my senior class Plainsman 1958 yearbook. The photo seemed to represent memories of my generation at Wesleyan! The four drum majorettes are: Judy Johnson, Sharon Stevens, Kathy Klemme and Janice Benge.
