A Topeka High “over achiever,” Judy Stuenkel’s activities list in the back of the 1958 Sunflower goes on and on: A.F.S. Council, Thespians Sec. – Treas., Senior Class Sec. – Treas., plus two telling clubs: Future Teachers and Math Club. She attended Washburn University and began teaching mathematics at USD 501 in 1963.

She is especially busy with the Washburn University Alumni Assn., serving as President in 1990-91.
