Retired 1st Grade Teacher Mindy Jones couldn't believe her eyes when she read the Daily Herald story on the Conant High School production of Legally Blonde The Musical.

"When I saw Carly and Jeremy's names in the Herald story, I immediately called my teaching partner Julie Gorvett and we made plans to go see the show!" said Mrs. Jones.
