The woman with a passion for preserving the past now has become part of history as a school namesake for Northside ISD.
Bobbye Behlau grew up in Lampasas, where she began her education in a one-room schoolhouse. After graduating from Abilene Christian College in 1950, she began teaching third grade in Killeen. She soon moved to Randolph Elementary School at Randolph Air Force Base, where she met her husband, Joe.
The couple married in 1952, and Behlau taught in California, Florida, and Georgia until her husband was discharged from the Air Force.
