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 Bob Kidder.

Kidder wrote: “Here is a photo of the Miles Township Class of 1956, which was a part of the four-school Penns Valley Area Joint School System. This class photo was taken, as I recall, in a 1955 time frame, and not in our graduation year.”

Second row, from left: John Wilcox, Janet Brungart (Ishler), Aida Weagley (Lamey), Yvonne Weber (Smith), Sylvia Duck (Phillips), Shirley Stover (Haines), Yvonne Hazel (Bower) and Wayne Bowersox.
