Because of the increased enrollment from year to year, more courses were added and more improvements were made until it became necessary to enlarge the school. The addition is our grand, new auditorium. The main attractions in it are the beautiful gym and stage. There are also dressing rooms, showers for girls and boys, a recitation room and a farm machine shop. The stage has a wine colored curtain with the monogram “G” on it for which we are indeed proud.

The project was started December 5, 1938 and was completed on August 18, 1939. The total cost amounting to approximately $56,484. The auditorium will be open for the public with an appropriate dedication and program Friday evening. The school board consists of H.R. Baird, director; D.A. Armstrong, clerk, and William Steiger, treasurer. The faculty consist of O.P. Deuel, principal and the following high school teachers: R.W. Schwahn, L.G. Hinkle, A. Heinze, G. Crowley, B. Bienfang, R. Sell, M. Kelly. The grade teachers are: H. Jacobson, R. Clark, L. Bartz, and A. Jacobson.

We the students of the Greenwood High School, express our appreciation to the City of Greenwood for this lively building and all of us are eagerly looking forward to the many activities which will be held in it during the course of
the year.
