BELLEFONTAINE BOARD OF EDUCATION: Retired teachers complete school history booklet

Bellefontaine Schools Board of Education members and administrators were issued a difficult challenge at Monday evening’s board of education meeting — a history quiz about the school district that detailed events dating back to the 1800s.

Retired teachers Kris Swisher and Janice Miller presented the trivia test during the meeting following their recent completion of a booklet and digital resources about the school district’s history.

The pair initially worked together on this project in 1982 when they both were studying to receive their master’s degrees from The Ohio State University. They said the school’s history had not been updated since that time.

“It was enjoyable the first time around, and it was fun doing this together again,” Ms. Miller said.

“We visited the old school sites back in 1982 and met a lot of interesting people,” Ms. Swisher said.
