When I was growing up we lived in the country. When I first started to school, although they had a school that had all the modern conveniences, the first three grades started out in the old one room (converted to three room) school house with no plumbing and with outhouses (one for the boys and one for the girls) out back. I went through all 12 grades in the same school system but in three different school buildings. All three of these were located in interesting and/or historical places.
The location of the schools where I attended from first through ninth grade were located in the town of Nixon. No, it wasn't named for the infamous president. (but he did visit the little town one time.) It was very small, but had an airport and I remember DC-3s just missing the chimneys on the school.
Then after the school systems in the area consolidated and built a new high school, we were bussed to just outside of Saxonburg. That little town had quite a history. The inventor of woven wire cable and the suspension bridge, John Roebling, founded Saxonburg. I attended a class reunion a few years back that was held in Saxonburg at the museum and learned a few things about the town that I didn't know. It had artifacts from KDKA's transmitter (large tubes and equipment) which was broadcast from that area. The area was also home to a nuclear research facility where they built a 450 MeV proton synchrocyclotron in 1946 which stayed active up into the mid 1970's.
After graduating from high school, I was off to Penn State for a couple of years. OK, that was just a little history of where all I went to school when I was growing up. I enjoyed school and now I want you to enjoy yourselves and have a great day, you hear?
