    I am grateful to my son-in-law, Rev. John Schmidt, for sharing this exciting news item with me. I am proud to claim Dr. Laabs, the LEA director as my nephew by marriage to my niece June Meyer Laabs. a graduate of CTC Seward also. My deceased husband, Dr. Bernard Gastler, and myself were privileged to be graduates of CTC, Seward, NE. and years later he was a music prof at Concordia Austin. Our son, Greg Gastler and his daughter, Katherine, are graduates of Concordia River Forest. He and his wife, Jenny Hansen Gastler, both teach in Lutheran schools in St. Louis and our daughter, Connie Gastler Schmidt, teaches at Concordia Lutheran School, Tacoma, WA. We have been sold on Lutheran education since 1947 when we became students. Praise God for His blessings upon our faithful teachers and Lutheran schools. Congratulations, Dr. Laabs.
