Brigham Young High School Class of 1911.

This class is the first Brigham Young High School class known to have published its own yearbook. Individual photos of each person are beautifully done, and silly or insightful comments were included for each graduate. Research by Scott Cowley in the official records in the BYU Records Office has supplemented the yearbook listings. The current combined total of this BYH class stands at 112, with one honorary member [Vasco M. Tanner]. [July 2008]

At the same time the high school yearbook was published, the BYU Banyan was published, which also included the Brigham Young High School classes.

A gifted artist who exhibited her work in the community as well as in her classroom, Flora Davis Fisher was a creative, talented, excellent teacher who was highly regarded by her peers, parents, and students. She instilled in her students a desire to do their best and to give their best, believing that every person had the responsibility to contribute to the world and make it a better place, regardless of their challenges or circumstances. She taught her students to be the very best people they could be and to never quit or give up, even when things were difficult for them. She never gave up on her students either, no matter what their difficulties. Having lost her father at a young age, Flora helped her widowed mother support and raise the large family on a small family farm. Flora worked hard and sacrificed much to help her mother see that every child in her large family graduated from college, against great odds. Flora was a tireless worker, who continued to bless children's and teachers lives long after her years of formal teaching ended. Wherever there was a child in need, Flora was there to help them. She generously shared her artistic gifts with a paintbrush, and an embroidery needle, and could make something out of anything, as her prospective elementary teacher students at BYU often challenged her to do. Flora Davis married to Asael H. Fisher, also a gifted teacher and craftsman at Provo High, who had two specialties: teaching woodworking, and helping rescue teenage boys who needed a strong mentor and someone to love and care about them. They were a dynamite couple. Their 3 children are: J. Dean Fisher (Marjorie Stevens), Grant A. Fisher (Elayne Taylor), and Afton Fisher Graham (Arnold). ~ ~ ~ ~ Source 2: Flora Davis Fisher.
