Laughner, Norma

 Person

Norma Laughner grew up on Elm Street in Slippery Rock. Her father took her to the college football games and her mother worked here in the laundry. In 1944 Laughner started her freshman year, majoring in English and speech. That year there were only two men in her class, but soon the World War II veterans arrived.

Laughner taught for the English Department for ten years, later becoming the secretary for the Alumni Association. She met her husband Carl while singing in the choir at vespers in the Chapel, a building she and the Alumni Association tried to save from demolition.
