7aa Mm Harry Emmerson, known to most people as Coach Emmerson, was a typical hard-working man of our community. Coach Emmerson's main interest was in the boys he worked with. Nearly all of his time was given to the boys of Morningside, trying to make better men and citizens of them. Mr. Emmerson was a coach and teacher at East Junior High School. Even his occupation was used to assist the younger generation. Many boys of our community are thank- ful for having had the opportunity of being coached by Harry Emmerson, who put many of them on the right road of life. His Boy Scout troop, which had over a hundred members, was known throughout the city for its achievements. No one could have done more for our Morningside community. aG East High has been especially fortunate in the sup- port given it by the surrounding community: in fact, East is almost unique among big city schools in being strongly identified with a certain area. East is Sioux City Morningside High. Businessmen of that area helped buy uniforms for East High's first band back in 1930: they gave a large contribution to outfit the hundred-plus band of 1949-50. They have lent trucks for parades, bought advertising in W wwe. ati", Q-V, if 1 HARRY E. EMMERSON paper and annual, offered students part-time em- ployment.

Seldom has any school enjoyed such whole-hearted community sup- port. To Morningside Residents in Gratitude for Their Help an d...

"From Kindergarten through College in Morning- side" was the theme of the official dedication of East High School on June 8, 1926.
