Fondly, I remember Mr. Yost from my years at Garden Spot High School going back to the mid 1960s. Though I married and now live in Detroit, Pennsylvania and particularly Lancaster County pull at my heart. Mr. Yost was always very affable and we all liked him. Seeing him at the New Holland Pool was a treat , too. Teachers really did have a life outside of school. ( his wife too)!

Thank you Mr. Yost for making history more than something you read in a book; for sharing what you lived and caring for your students beyond a paycheck. Your World War II class was a favorite. Thank you sir, well done.

Tina Posted at 07:12pm

Mr. Yost was a wonderful caring teacher and person who touched the life of many of his students. He is one teacher that I and many of his students will never forget. Thank you for making your history classes enjoyable! And thank you for seeing your students as individuals and actually talk with them. You have touched the life of so many.
