I went to DK's funeral. I miss her a lot. But its because of her that I stayed in Drama, and got BFA in Theatre Directing. Have worked in most major theaters in Wash., DC area, and am now work in television.

I do remember D.K., but I never was a student of hers.  I was in choir so often I would see her in the halls of the performing arts building.  I was saddened by her passing and remember that well.  She did have a profound effect on so many people.

DK died my senior year 82 of cancer.  She was a great lady and a great teacher.

Who could forget DK? She was awesome. I had her in 9th grade with Kevin Peck and Becky Yane. She was a saint to put up with us. Because she was a professional, she made a lasting impression on me on performing arts.

I remember d.k. very fondly. She was a very kind and patient lady. I was only at Groveton for two years (78-80) before my family moved, but most of my memories from my time at Groveton come from being involved on the tech side of the Drama department.

I was lucky in the short time I was at Groveton, well at least sharing your campus as some idiots burned my school Fort Hunt down, to have D.K in my life. She inspired me as an actor and made me believe in myself. If it wasn't for her I know I wouldn't be working as an actor today.

Yep, I'm still here in the area. Living in the folks house even, back in Hollin Meadows. Dad passed last year, and mom now in home. So I'm taking care of things.
Hope all is well. Sorry for delay in responding, but it was just brought to my attention that you were looking for me.

I rarely check this site, so you may respond directly to bongreen@gte.net.

No one can forget the unforgettable. DK, as we called her in the class of '72, was a brilliant and caring teacher. When I first logged onto this site months ago, I asked if there were former Thespians out there and am so glad (though not surprised) that her life continued to inspire so many years both before and after I was privileged to be there in in the Troupe.
She was a fine lady and I thinkof her often.

Dottie Kogleman was/is a class act. I was blessed to be mentored by her, and although we did not agree on every idea, I respected her opinions.

She encouraged me to act, today as I do public speaking, I remember her!

Very attractive lady!

Yes, DK was a one-of-a-kind wonderful person and teacher. She was an amazing inspiration, patient and demanding of excellence at the same time... I learned how to feel comfortable speaking in front of large groups, and to PROJECT! ;-) I went to her funeral, too. May she rest in peace... Melissa Stone, Class of '80

I was privileged to serve as her student stage manager 65-66 and 66-67. She spent a lot of time trying to get me to do more on stage but only succeeded in getting me to act in the Greek one act plays at the state competition which we won that year. I will never forget Dorothy. We had so many talented thespians I loved every minute of time on the stage crew.
