2 » 2 is my Towson number

My name is JoAnn Asher Scott and 2 is my Towson number. I think so because this year I celebrated the fact that I graduated from Towson 50 years ago in 1962. 2 is my special number because I was the 2nd generation of my family to attend Towson. My grandmother Lucy Evans Asher attended Towson in 1914 when it was the "Normal" school. Another reason 2 is my number is that there were 2 of me who attended Towson from '58 to '62. My identical twin sister Jayne Asher Astle, attended with me. We looked exactly alike. We were one of many sets at Towson State. The Baltimore Sun did a feature article in 1958 on twins at Towson because there were so many of us that year. When there were times that I had to miss my classes, Jayne would take my place and no one knew the difference. One of those times was when my roommates gave me a permanent. It looked so bad I would not leave the dorm for several days. They all pitched in money to send me to the beauty shop across York Road to fix me up after the disaster. A fourth reason 2 is my number is that I had two special friends at Towson. The first was my roommate Phyllis Balzer Beardmore. The 2nd was her older sister Winnifred, "Winnie" Balzer Flatery. Winnie was a mentor for all of us. Finally, there were 2 other members of my family who also attended Towson. The first one came as a complete surprise to me. One day during freshman geography class the boy next to me said, "I think you are my cousin." I said, "I don't know you, what's your name?". It turned out to be Robert Elliot. He was my mother's brother's son and we had not seen or heard from his family since we both were three years old. The 2nd other member of my family who attended Towson was my younger brother, Thomas Elliot Asher. he attended Towson 12 years later. So you can see why my special # is 2.
