The Couple Were College Sweethearts

Kiwi Report

When Janice and Prentiss met in college, they fell in love. What they didn’t know, was how the love they shared would one day drive them apart. Janice was considered ahead of her time. She attended Occidental College to study biology in the 1960s. Janice was a young, beautiful, and hopeful college student.

When Janice was a sophomore in college, Prentiss was just a freshman. Prentiss came from a wealthy family. Following his family’s orders, he was to do well in college studying to become a doctor or a lawyer. He was able to put his best foot into the world by attending Occidental, which was an expensive private school.

Janice was, by no means, wealthy. Even though her father, who pushed her to attend Occidental, helped pay for her schooling, she still needed to work a job to make ends meet. When she wasn’t in her classes, she was working in the school cafeteria every day, serving food. This was where she would first catch the eye of Prentiss.

Prentiss says, "I believe we were simply meant to be. I even remember the first time I laid eyes on Janice." It was as she was serving breakfast in the cafeteria. He says he was always on time for breakfast after that, “every day, at 6 a.m., because I just wanted to see her and have our little morning exchange.”

Even though Prentiss believed they were meant to be, he second-guessed himself. He said, "I actually didn’t think I had a chance with her. She was a year ahead of me and just so beautiful.” He decided to just admire her from a distance, even though he enjoyed the daily conversations at breakfast they engaged in.
