Current and former students, staff gathered for special presentation at meeting of FFSD Board
The January meeting of the Ferguson-Florissant Board of Education featured a special presentation: the unveiling of the original cornerstone and time capsule from the former Ferguson Junior High School. They were placed in the school as a part of its construction in 1952. The Ferguson-Florissant School
District, in concert with the 8th Grade Graduating Class of June 11, 1953, brought the items and history together for further celebration on Jan. 9.
In addition to the cornerstone and time capsule, other artifacts were on display at the meeting: Twelve (12) mounted enlargements of the scrolls contained in the time capsule;
“The Crest” yearbook from Ferguson High School, 1952, 53, and 57; issues of the Ferguson High School Scoop Newspaper, 1957; three mounted enlargements of pages from a 1957 scrapbook; class of 1957 Memory Book from 2012 reunion; and “The View” yearbook from Ferguson Middle School, 1989, with photos from the school’s rebuilding following a fire that swept through the west wing of the school in 1988.
Members of the 8th Grade Graduating Class of 1953 presented a poster containing additional collected images and information to the Ferguson-Florissant Board of Education.
