Tenth Anniversary


On November 13th, East Central Schools held its 10 year Anniversary of the current school.  Many people stopped in to look at pictures of the construction process and the original referendum that was sent out for voting. 

Pictured to the right is East Central Superintendent, Andy Almos, with Superintendent Todd McCormick.  Mr. McCormick was the first Superintendent in the current building.  Superintendent John Cambronne was the driving force in the construction of the new building, but retired when the construction was complete.

There were also tours given of the building by current students of East Central.  The students were Nina Sewell, Alyssa Prepodnik, Jacob Domogalla, Gabriela Villarreal, and Sami Koland.  Thank you students for your help!  Pictures of the Anniversary can be found in the photo gallery.
