Memories of Ralph "Bugsy" Evans

John Skinner OPC '67 (at left, on vacation with his wife) wrote in with memories of Ralph "Bugsy" Evans, one of his many favorite teachers.  

Ralph “ Bugsy” Evans was my Biology teacher. He was the best and I was fortunate enough, with my classmate Bob Hendrix, to take a nature tour with him to the South Jersey shore. There he introduced to a new cheese that he claimed was very “Gouda."

Among other things showed us was a Venus Flytrap which we found quite cool. We also saw the largest group of Bald Eagles I have ever seen. He was fun and he made the trip and adventure.

My other memory of Bugsy Evans was that if he asked you a question in class, and your answer was full of you-know-what!, he would pretend to shovel.  And if you did it on a test, he would draw a vacuum cleaner next to your answer. He, like my other teachers, was one of a kind.

I am quite proud to be a graduate of as fine a school as there is. The honor system truly worked and I am proud to be a part of the Penn Charter Story.
