While a Senior at PHS, Claudine was the Editorial Manager of the Beanpicker year book. She was known as one of the most industrious and ambitious member of her class. Her high scholastic average won her membership in the Beta Club. Her high ideals challenged the admiration of her schoolmates and her friendly manner and simple frankness won her many friends.
