Each Monday the Centre Daily Times will publish an installment in our “Share our Heritage” series, featuring photos from Centre County’s past. Today’s photo is from Gladys Burnside of State College.

She shared this photo of the 1937 graduating class of Boalsburg High School. Her brother, Robert “Bobby” Jackson Jr., is in the photo. He is third from the right in the back row.

She was not sure of the names of any other students, but was able to identify the three teachers. In the first row, seated, on the left, is Ed Dale. Leroy Freeby is the person seated on the far right in the same row. Sam Ross is the first person on the left in the middle row.
