Echoes of the past sound through empty hallways of historic junior high
With empty lockers and classrooms packed away, the halls of Thomas Ewing Junior High School were quiet Thursday night [December 19], empty as the staff and students prepare to start the next term in the new building.
The school was open to those who wanted to say farewell as the next chapter of Thomas Ewing starts after the new year.
Bob Urig, former principal at the junior high, looked down the hall and at the collected memorabilia outside the auditorium. He said he hadn't been sure if he'd wanted to come to the dedication ceremony to commemorate the building.
"I knew that once I came in here, there would be a lot of good memories from my time here, and it'd be bittersweet to come back," he said.
