Yuma Union High School

Class of 1925

     The photo sections below are missing two girls names. According to the commencement listing of graduates the unidentified girls were Josephine Benish and Pearl Chapman.   Note:   with a 203 photo of Josephine Benish contributed to Ancestry, the far right girl standing is almost certainly Josephine.
     If you can help sort out the faces vs names of the four girls seated on the left end of the second row we would very much appreciate it! (email Lee Zion, mdmonk2@tx.rr.com)
