Today’s photo is from Paul Royer.

Royer wrote: “The attached photo is from my class at what was then known as College Township Elementary School. I do not know exactly which year this was taken, perhaps fourth, fifth or sixth grade. The principal was Mr. Weaver, top row, far right. I remember the names of many of the classmates in the photo but not all. ... Most, if not all, went on to SCAHS Class of ’61.”
