Katherine Sombric attended local schools in Manchester CT--the former Bentley elementary school, Illing jr high and Manchester High, where she graduated in '78.
Sally Davis commented on Dec 27, 2018
Katherine Sombric had a well-known appearance issue--a excessively elongated nose. Yet she still opted to be photographed for the MHS yearbook of '78. The photographer deserves much credit. Evidently, he had Kathy pose at a certain angle, which made the issue practically invisible.
