Laura Kilchenstein attended Peabody High School in Pittsburgh and Sharon High School. She received a B.C.S. degree from Grove City College in 1923, where she was an assistant instructor in the Commercial Department.
The 1923 Ouija yearbook said this about Laura:
"'Quips, and pranks, and wanton wiles, Nods and becks and wreathed smiles.' -- Just a few of the many characteristics of Laura's sunny disposition which have won for her a lasting memory among a host of friends."
