Letters from Hermosa Middle School eighth graders in 1967

Published by Magdalena Wegrzyn
In 1967, the Vietnam War, miniskirts and space travel were on the minds of eighth-grade students at Hermosa Middle School in Farmington. Forty-seven years ago, the eighth graders mentioned those topics in letters they wrote to future students. Lola Delaney, the school’s librarian, recently found the letters while cleaning the school’s library.
