In 1964 Algonac High School students found themselves leaving the halls and classrooms of the building constructed in 1922 to attend the contemporary school building in Pte. Tremble. This long-awaited exodus was not as delightful as hoped. The " old school " meant much more to the faculty and students than just academic learning It was where the Sen- iors spent hours toiling for their play and the Juniors prepared for their prom. It was where laughter flourished and smiles were abundant It was where many young romances began and were terminated. So, naming the school was meaningful. As a dedication to the late Roy T. Gilbert, our " old school " was named Gilbert Junior High School. For 53 years, Mr Gilbert served on the Board of Education, 42 years of which he held the Office of Secretary. His aims were directed toward the education of the community children. His work extended not only locally, but also statewide. Besides having held the Office of President of both the Rotary Club and the Community Chest, he was elected to the State Legislature. This dedication cannot thoroughly express our appreciation to Mr Gilbert
