Generations To Come
By Willard L. Lewis
Connellsville had done itself proud in the matter of public education. Fifty years ago - at the turn of the century in the life of this city - there were four school buildings in the physical assets of the district. Today there are seven structures, the newest of which is the Connellsville Joint High School - to be used for the first time when classes resume in September.
The new school has been erected at a cost of $2,700,000. It will give students access to the finest of facilities, contributing much to the better education of countless generations to come.
Education certainly has a place in the vision of things to come - and Connellsville is ready. Erection of the Joint High School makes it possible for children of adjacent school districts to share in these educational benefits.
Education here is geared for the future - at least for the next half century.
