HISTORY GP TI-IE UNION
Originally there were two separate schools, one in Ohi-0 and
one in Indiana. By a special act of both legislatures the plan to
build a Union school that would serve both districts, was made
Advantage was taken of the local situation and the building
was constructed, half in Ohio and half in Indiana. This is the
only school in the country holding this distinction.
Bonds were floated and a new building constructed at a
cost of 310,000.00
The first four-ye-ar class to graduate was in 1897 and there
were eight members of the class. E. P. Wilson was the superin--
tendent and Grant Smith the principal. A
Following Mr. Wilson was C. E. Gillespie, and then Edward
Gardner, who died August 27th, 1935, D. A. Grove, Jesse Brill,
L. D. Brouse, Wm. N. MclVIahan, and the present .superintendent
Warnock M. Wright.
With the increased attendance the building was not ade-
quate and in 1925, under the direction of Mr. McMahan, a new
structure was erected with the expectation of taking care of the
needs of the community for years to come.
In 1934 the Union Public School was reorganized and upon
the recommendation of both State Departments of Eudhication the
school was changed from the 8-4 plan to the 6-6 plan. The first
six grades occupy the first floor, and the upper six grades are on
the second floor under departmentalized work. The special sub-
jects are in the basement.
The Union Public School holds a First-Class Charter in Ohio
and a Continuous Commission in Indiana. It is the aim of the
administration to adld a Commercial Course and a Vocations
course to the present curriculum next year and thereby become
first-class in both states.
