Andy Gilner has taught government and political science for 40 years, but his first year in teaching he dabbled in drama, playing a role in the senior play “Meet My Ghosts.” That was at Bazine High School where the senior class had 10 students, not enough bodies for all the play’s roles. Gilner was reminded of this and other stories Sunday during a reception for retiring Tonganoxie USD 464 faculty and staff in the commons area at Tonganoxie Middle School.
