Did You Know… who these two are, and what service they provided to Perry youth, for many years? Shown are Dixie Sheets and Betty Mae Harris, from 1954. Betty Mae taught dance to generations of Perry’s young girls and boys. There are many women today that have fond memories of taking dance with Betty Mae Harris. My contact with her came when she staged her annual show, on the stage of the then High School at 10th & Willis. No I was not a student, but stage manager and ran lights and curtain for the shows. It was always a good time for me, as I knew most of her students. She touched the lives of so many, over many years.
