The Girl from Nip ‘n’ Tuck

The Girl from Nip 'n' Tuck


Dianne Hollis Lundy
When I took a teaching job in Rapides Parish in 1969, I thought I would be teaching in a small country school, having been assigned to the junior high section of Ruby-Wise. Little did I know that I was destined to become a part of history when at midterm I became one of the first white teachers in the parish who was assigned to integrate the faculty of Wettermark, one of the all-black high schools in the parish. I was later sent to another all-black high school, Carter C. Raymond in Lecompte. The story of this experience is described in detail in my autobiography, “The Girl from Nip ‘n’ Tuck,” which I will be displaying and selling at Authors’ Day at the MLK library in Alexandria on Saturday, February 27th from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
