The Office/ Ruth Kahn

Ruth Kahn at East Hill graduation

“Ruth Kahn was the defacto principal at East Hill.  She really was the one to go to when I needed anything.  Dan did a lot of the custodial functions.  We couldn’t have managed without Ruth.” – Roberta Wallitt

Dan Lee

“I remember feeling like Dan Lee and Ruth Kahn were sometimes our ambassadors to the outside world, and sometimes the outside world’s ambassadors to us.” – Anonymous

Ruth Kahn more recently

“Waiting on the front slope for my mother to pick me up. One time I was jumping across the sidewalk to pass the time, but it was icy, and I fell and hit my chin on the ice. Ruth took care of me, I think, until my mom got there. I needed 7 stitches in my chin.” – Erica Peters
