Emily Follensbee School
Emily Follensbee was quite an amazing person. She had a son who was mentally challenged and there were no schools in Calgary in the early 1950's for her son to attend. Emily wanted schooling for her son and others with similar challenges so she just went ahead and started a school. I knew Emily in her later years and she was out to Church every Sunday into her late 90's and helping out in the kitchen with lunches. A good person who made the world a better place. Emily finally passed away a few weeks short of her hundredth birthday, but her legacy lives on and continues to make life better for the kids who attend her school.
