The June 10, 1981 issue of the Ocracoke Island News ran a full page article on the nine graduating seniors. It was accompanied by caricatures by Kitty Martin Mitchell.
|Melissa by Kitty Martin|
The paper described Melissa as "a former cheerleader and basketball player. Melissa has served as advertising manage for both the school newspaper and yearbook. A member of the homecoming court, her hobbies include singing and reading. Melissa plans to stay on the island and continue working as the Community Store."
Melissa later took a job with the Post Office, and continues to serve our community in that capacity. She is a dedicated employee, as well as a devoted wife & mother, and a willing volunteer for community organizations. When you next visit the Post Office tell Melissa you saw her "picture" in the Ocracoke Journal!
