Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Feb 1956 CR School Board

Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Feb 1956 CR School Board

This was the Coon Rapids Board of Education back in February 1956. At this meeting held in the administrative office of the old 1914 school, the board discussed further details of the new elementary school building. That building would be completed in 1957 and serve the community of Coon Rapids, and later Bayard, for the next 55 years. Left to right, clockwise: Supt. H.L. Zea, Leverne “Pete” Smith, Don Williams, Wesley Davis, Maurice Campbell, Secretary Mrs. Edith Johnson and President Al Headlee. Sitting on the left is school attorney Dale Carpenter. Hanging on the wall is a small picture of the community’s first school.

[Note: The following year, Pete, my Dad, served at President of the School Board, and gave me my High School diploma. Neat!  ]
