Steve Emme, Sharon Mayotte Emme and Gail Emme. OK, here is the cool story. Sharon, sister of LuAnn Mayotte, is Steve's mom. (And LuAnn is Steve's aunt).  Sharon Mayotte Emme graduated  in the first class to come out of Clifton Central after the building was completed, in 1954. She was the prom queen. Before that, each high school in each town graduated its own class under the name of the town, but the sports teams were consolidated under the Clifton Central logo.  The Clifton Central school district was formed in 1950, but it took 3 years to get the building funded and built. (Thank you, Steve, historian). And, Gail is Steve's wife and Sharon's daughter-in-law.
