Triadelphia Middle School celebrated its 100th year as a school on Thursday evening.
Over the years, the building has served as a high school, a junior high, and now a middle school for students.
Former students, teachers, staff members, and the community were invited to roam the halls Thursday evening, before any of the changes from the newly-passed bond levy take place.
They were able to browse student research on the history of Triadelphia, yearbooks dating back to the 1920’s, look at projects that students have created, and listen to performances from the school chorus, band, and strings students.
People who have fond memories of Triadelphia are encouraged to be a part of the school’s permanent history.
“We’re inviting members of the public who have an association with Triadelphia to purchase a brick engraved with their name or what their purpose was, whether they were a teacher, student, maybe the name of their family, and we’re going to place those bricks in a garden we’re building on our campus,” Principal Ann Coleman said.
The bricks were on sale Thursday night, but if you would like to purchase one, you can call Triadelphia Middle School at (304) 243-0387.
Once the improvements are made to the school, the public will be invited back for a second look.
