Phyllis C. Bogarin

She graduated from Northern MI College of Education in 1955 with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. She married Russell "Sam" Bogarin, also a graduate of NMC, in 1956. They both taught in the Belleville, MI schools before moving to Ypsilanti in 1959. Shortly after, they became dedicated members of Emmanuel Lutheran Church.
