George said memorabilia from the school will be on display when completed.
Classmate Donald George said he is a proud graduate of the school, which he said produced a lot of outstanding educators over the years. George himself was an educator for 10 years. He said he has been trying to collect biographies of all the students who attended the school and has gotten quite a few so far.
Fellow classmate Evelyn Gratts said she has many fond memories of her time at MPCS, including wearing riding pants to stay warm in class during the cooler months and receiving ribbing from her classmates.
“I was always warm, no matter what they said,” Gratts said.
She also remembers the three-base baseball field where if you hit the ball too far, it was considered an out because there was no fence.
The public’s help is being solicited in helping to finish the project. Any donations of cash or services can be directed to Raymond George at 817-304-3519.
