T850 - T950
THE HARDEST HUNDRED YEARS
Since wagons westward
First dragged their painful way
Through desert, and over mountain
Past Indian perils and waterless plains
To California's treasured valleys,
Our schools have come a long way.
From a day when education
Meant lifting an axe,
Shoeing a horse,
Wresting a living from unwilling soil-
Hanging blindly to life with only a
The century has brought forth schools
On which many another state
Now builds its models.
We owe the comforts of Now
To the sacrifices of Then.
We of T950 must be worthy of them.
