Jeannette Myhre Elementary School was constructed in 1972 with additions in 1974 and 1977 and was named after a former principal, Jeannette Myhre, who was a devoted teacher and principal of Wachter School from 1924 to 1966.

Jeannette Myhre was a strong influence on both students and teachers. She was known as a strict disciplinarian who considered it her mission to raise the self-esteem of each child that attended Wachter School.

Miss Myhre was active in the PTA where she is remembered as maintaining a decorum of dignity by pouring coffee from a sterling silver serving set on a lace covered tablecloth.

Many alumnae of Wachter credit Miss Myhre for shaping the social values that they used as a basis for life-long success.

A picture of Jeannette Myhre hangs in the school named for her. She died in 1982 at the age of 81.
