Most memorable experience at Tooele High School:
I still remember the day we removed all the classroom doors from the front upper hallway and took them to the area where our algebra teacher resided (I can't recall her name).
I remember Mr. Richardson coming back from lunch and being so mad, he got a migraine headache and went home for the day. We all got called into Mr. Evans' office, but he could prove nothing!
