Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The 1970s saw older women returning to campus in every-increasing numbers. Rosella McConnell of Placentia, a retired postal worker and great grandmother, was one of the star pupils of automatic transmission instructor Donald L. Staples. McConnell was putting in about 29 hours a week on campus. When asked why she was taking automatic transmission courses, McConnell replied: “So I won’t get ripped off when I need work done on my car.”
