A little about Mrs. Bonnie Brennan

This elementary school in Desert View was named after Mrs. Bonnie Brennan on Sunday, September 24, 1961. It was named in her honor of the twenty-three years' outstanding service she generously gave as a member of the school board.

Mrs. Brennan, born in 1894 in Pueblo, Colorado, came to Winslow at the age of four with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Fenton. She was gradutaed from the eighth grade in Lincoln School in 1909. Mrs. Brennan was unable to attend high school since Winslow didn't have one until 1912. By that time she had accepted a job and didn't further her formal education. In 1913 she became the bride of Roy Brennan. They are the parents of three sons.

Because of her love for children, Mrs. Bonnie Brennan accepted the appointment as board member in 1936 to complete the unexpired term of a member. This dedicated woman, who served seven terms on the board, has served longer than any other person. Her job on the board varied from year to year.

In January 1959, at the age of sixty-five, she decided not to seek the position again. "I love children and that's the main reason why I hate to give up this work." She also commented that this was the most enjoyable undertaking she has ever had.

During all these years of service she was a very cooperative person, faithful in attendance, congenial and always considerate. Mr. R. R. Booth, Superintendent of Schools, expressed the feelings of many interested people when he stated, "I hate to see Mrs. Brennan retire as she has been an excellent board member. However, she deserved some time to herself."
