Mary Badham, who played Scout in the movie version of To Kill a Mockingbird, visited Goochland High School on April 16.
Mrs. Badham stopped by to visit Mrs. Abbott, who has been a fan of both the book and the movie version since she was in high school.
Mrs. Abbott is our 9th grade Language Arts teacher. “Since I decided to become a teacher, I have always wanted to teach this particular book,” said Mrs. Abbott. “You could say I am actually living the dream.”
Ms. Badham gave Mrs. Abbott an autographed still image from the movie. The two of them spent some time in Mrs. Abbott’s room going over the Mockingbird display created over the years by Mrs. Abbott and her students.
