George said the impact of the school’s education has been something he has been questioned about many times.
“People ask me, what kind of education could I possibly have here,” he said. “But the truth is we got a very good education. You had teachers come out of that school, bank presidents, policemen, nurses.
“We’re all very proud of where we came from.”
Beginning in the Spring, the committee is planning on setting up various events to help drum up funds, including a massive barbecue for the community.
“I want the Mount Pleasant School to be restored as close to its original structure as possible,” George said. “I’m not very patient, but I’m 75 years old, and I’d like to see this happen soon.”
