L Laura (Meyer) Engelhardt February 14, 2022

Mrs. Tilton (AKA "KT") was a mentor to so many students at Maquoketa High School. She encouraged those of us who lacked confidence and helped me find my voice. Her comments and suggestions pushed us to improve and become the best versions of ourselves. The summer before my senior year, she drove another student and me in an air conditioned-less Suburban all the way to Muncie, Indiana, for the International Thespian Convention. Without her generous gift of time and energy, we would never have had that experience. She will be so missed.
