Margaret Carol Barringer was a graduate of Philo High School. Her children graduated from Philo High School, & her grandchildren graduated from Philo High School. She was widowed at the age of 32, but worked multiple jobs to ensure that her children were able to receive the college education she so desperately wanted for them.
