Miss Swanson was a dedicated instructor at Port Allegany High School. She was strict but fair. Hundreds of students owe their typing, shorthand and and other business skills to her. She had a beautiful smile and will always be remembered by her students. I’m sorry for her passing but feel blessed to have known her.
