Humboldt High counselor Carol Larson helps junior Taylor Beeman with post-secondary plans.

In 1980, her third year of clerking for Bob Adams at his Ben Franklin variety store in Humboldt, Carol Larson took a day off to visit Pittsburg State University. She had earned an associate degree at Allen County juco, and decided there was more to life than working in a five-and-dime.

“I was wandering a hall in the phys. ed. department when Dr. Tom Bryant (later PSU president) asked what I was doing. We talked. Before I left I was enrolled.”

After teaching and coaching 13 years at Humboldt High, Carol returned to PSU for a master’s degree in psychology and counseling.
