OUR HIGI-I SCHOOL
Yates Center's first High School was started in 1887 and was held in an old
stone building. A three year course was offered in this school. In 1890, the first
graduating class consisted of Elizabeth Spencer, Olive Wilder, Elma Holloway and
Ada Shenk. Vvhen this class started in high school Mr. E. L. Gowdrick was Super-
intendent, but the year they were graduated J. H. Jones was Superintendent. In
1901, a new school building known as the VVashington School was completed in which
both grade and high school students attended. High School classes continued to be
graduated from this building until 1924.
The present High School building was started in 1022 and the first class was
graduatld from it in 1924. Since that time there have been four different superin-
tendents namely: Mr. Markham, Mr. Paxton, Mr. Widner, and Mr. Lancaster.
The curriculum of the present High School consists of four courses of study:
General Course. Commercial Course, College Preparation and Vocational Home
The Seniors of 1940 are proud to be gradutes oi' Yates Center High School.
