Michigan middle school uses yearbooks to rekindle memories on last day
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
School board decisions to close a school due to low enrollment and other circumstances are always very difficult for all involved. That has been the reality this year for W.K. Kellogg Middle School in Battle Creek, Mich., which will be closing its doors this summer.
Fortunately, as this article from the Battle Creek Enquirer showed, the school was still able to have a celebration of Kellogg’s 79-year old history this week using yearbooks and trophies from the school’s past.
Visitors flipped through the yearbooks, reliving memories, chuckling at old pictures and even laughing at the theme of the 2000 yearbook, “Y2K.”
