Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Alice Knudson Mergler


Don Mergler (’57) and I had a superb marriage of 42 years. I provided Don with a basketball team of all boys, and then they provided me with twenty-one Grandchildren.

When our 4th son was about to leave for college and the other kids were still in various phases including law school, Don suggested that it would be a good idea if I went back to my teaching career for a little extra cash. I had recently obtained a Masters in European Studies, and so armed with my favorite idiom: “If you have a Pulse, you have a Purpose,” I applied with Prince Wm. Co. Schools. I was assigned to Stonewall Jackson HS teaching English and American Studies. My 50th Birthday was on Back-to-School Night that year, 1990. It turned out to be a smart decision, for in 2001, on New Year’s Eve, Don passed away in my arms.

That was sixteen or so years ago, and I have his W-L senior yearbook picture on my desk. It is inscribed, “Each Day, above all, is a Day without Him.” Don was a great father, a legendary coach of baseball and basketball, a beginning grandfather-his “favorite role,” and the best provider of wisdom and fun ever!

I taught until I was 74, and then started my own afternoon program called The New School. I loved helping kids add to their day and scholarship with many fun classes. Unfortunately, it did not last, but soon other great things happened, including OLLI, a series of classes for retirees taught at the George Mason campuses. Also, I created the Poet Laureate Circle, and every two years, we elect a new Prince William County Poet Laureate. Further, I am active in our County Arts Council, and in an open mike for poets called Spilled Ink. My newest challenge is that I have been asked to write The History of Crew in Northern Virginia. The reason I was chosen, I am quite sure, is that I was at W-L with Tony Johnson, and also because I am the grandmother of two State Champion rowers!

I want to finish by saying that I have never had better friends than those I met at Stratford and our fantastic high School. I never say "W-L" without feeling so proud and so glad that I was there as a member of the class of ’58!
