During a brief break from the school schedule in February, school staff completed the presentation of all the Senior Class Pictures at the elementary school. The Senior Class Picture Project was conceived in 2015 as the historic pictures were rescued from destruction before the old school building was demolished. PSAA determined that these pictures were integral to our mission to preserve the heritage and legacy of the old Pierceton School. Pierceton Elementary School principal Mike McClain supported our request to the Whitko school board members to display the photos at the new school.
This past year, the pictures of classes from 1960 – 1971 were hung in the school in they commons area at the east end of the gymnasium and in the hallway on the south side of the gym. These have been available for viewing since the 2018 Alumni Banquet was held in June 2018. Now all of the pictures from 1913 – 1959 have been mounted on the walls within the office spaces at the school.
If you’d like to see the pictures, you can visit the school any day classes are in session. Visiting hours for viewing are from 9:30 – 11:30am or 1:30 – 2:30pm. No need for an appointment; just show up and stroll down memory lane!
