Two schools honored for educating students

Submitted By Al Minard

Washington Township Historical Society (WTHS) voted at their May meeting to recognize Centerville Junior High School for over 150 years of educating students. Horner Junior High School was also honored for 50 years of its educational service to the community.

Washington Township Historical Society Board members, Brian Barlow, Regena Dennie, Nancy Lorigan and Al Minard presented a framed certificate to Dr. Garo Mirigian, principal at Centerville Junior High School on Thursday, June 12. Dr. Mirigian spoke about Centerville's long history and how a short movie was recently completed that features historic buildings of Centerville, past and present. Dr. Mirigian thanked WTHS for the certificate and noted it will be placed in a very prominent location. Board members congratulated Dr. Mirigian on his upcoming retirement and wished him well.

WTHS board members also presented a framed certificate to Greg Bailey, principal of Horner Junior High School. Mr. Bailey has dedicated an entire wall outside his office to graduates of Horner Junior High who have made significant contributions to mankind. He noted that there is room for more names and pictures so those who know of graduates who should be included can contact the school for an application. Mr. Bailey was pleased to accept the certificate and will add it to the wall of recognition.
