As some of you know, the school district I grew up in recently built new schools. And tore down the other buildings which had been apart of their respective communities for many, many years. It was hard to see those buildings go…so many memories of my school years were held in each of those buildings. I understand why they were torn down, and for the respect of the buildings and history, it was the best option.
A sculpture is being built by David McDowell (SVHS Class of ’98) using the cornerstones from the old schools as the base. I have included some pictures of the progress so far (photos by David McDowell)…
Top- Left to right- cornerstones from Waynesburg and East Sparta Elementary Schools, cornerstone from Magnolia Elementary School, place where a new time capsule and the old High School Cornerstone will go, cornerstone of Sandyville Elementary School.
Each of the cornerstones contained a time capsule and they were opened this past spring.
