THE BOARD OF EDUCATION
THE Board of Education of Derry Township is composed of seven members. Mr. A. T.
Heilman, Superintendent of the Hershey Chocolate Factory, is president of the Board.
Mr. John E. Snyder, Secretary for the Hershey Estates and Attorney for Mr. M. S. Hershey,
is vice-president. Mr. Earl R. Mays, Manager of the Reading Company Freight Offices,
is secretary and Mr. L. R. Poorman, Merchant and Butcher, is treasurer. The other mem-
bers of the Board are Mr. I. C. Erb, Nlerchant, and Mr. Edward Stover and Mr. Morris
Baum. Farmers. All of these men are public-spirited citizens in the highest sense of the
word and work unfailingly for the good of those of us who are in the schools of Derry
The Board has placed at our disposal a school plant that is second to none in teachers,
equipment, and enrichment of courses. The splendid playground and walks that have re-
cently been added through the kindly interest of Mr. M. S. Hershey and the Board have
done much to beautify our school grounds and make pleasant our recreation hour through-
out the school year.
We seldom stop to think that our school-board members serve without pay. We forget
that they spend hour after hour every month during the entire year trying to find for us the
best teachers, the best books, the best supplies, the best school that can be gotten. Some-
times much time has to be spent in devising plans to balance the budget, to conserve the
funds of the taxpayers as well as to give the best to the students. For all this there are
sometimes a few within the school as well as without who are ungrateful for all this service.
This is only true of comparatively few. They are those who do not think. They are those
who have never tried, but know. Then there are many, in fact a great majority, within the
school as well as without who keenly appreciate what these public-spirited citizens mean to
us. They wish to at all times thank our Board of Education for the noble work they are
doing and wish them a long and happy life in serving humanity. May they have God's speed
in their work is our wish.
