AB&TC MEMORIAL - PAMELA ANN HILGERT


Pam was involved in breeding and showing Black and Tan Coonhounds under the Brodhyll kennel name. Some may have known her as Pam West, when she was married to Dave West. Outside of dogs, Pam put herself through school and received a Masters in Education from Northern Illinois University and became a principal in the Rockford, Illinois school system and also taught gifted children in the Rochelle School District. She was a member of the Illinois Education Association and National Education Association, as well as the American Black and Tan Coonhound Club. She was also a wonderful traveling companion and handler assistant to me at shows for many years.

I can think of no better memorial to her than to assist in the care of rescue hounds.
