I was saddened to hear of the passing of Miss Garrison. She was my history teacher at Hart Memorial, 1967-68 school year. I fell in love with history when I entered her classroom: what an AWESOME teacher. I became a history/govt teacher and taught 40 yrs before retiring. Miss Garrison was my inspiration to choose teaching as my career!

Miss Garrison was an awesome teacher who was very passionate about teaching. She was very strict but had a heart of gold. I will always remember her.

It was the 1962-63 school year at Hart Memorial & we tried to solve world problems & argued political views. I remember one of her words of wisdom was dont eat meat cooked on charcoal grills (cancer causing)

So sorry to hear of Doris passing. I taught with her at Hart Co High School in 1971-72. She was the life the party and was so well thought by students and staff.

Miss Garrison was my very favorite teacher. She gave me my love of history that has lasted even until today.

Taught me a lot about Government and Economics at HCHS. One day in a class of seniors she surveyed our plans for the future. When I told her I planned to go to Florida College and enter a pre-engineering program she promptly responded, "If you go there, they'll make a preacher out of you!" Guess she was right! Blessings to her family.
