SOUTH BELOIT (WIFR) – It was a night full of memories in South Beloit as the school district celebrates its 100th birthday today.
Graduates from throughout the past 100 years visited South Beloit High School to hear stories from former teachers and students. Right outside the school auditorium were yearbooks and memorabilia from as far back as the 1940’s. The old pictures brought back good memories for South Beloit High School Class of ’69 graduates Roger Crary and his wife Sandy Kallas.
“I’d like to be young again,” said Crary, “…she says not.”
“A lot of memories,” said Kallas, “…a very fun time for us to be in school.”
Just to give you an idea of how long ago the district was established, just one year earlier was when the ship Titanic sank on its maiden voyage in the Atlantic and one year later, Wrigley field opened. By the way, the Cubs haven’t won a world series in that time either.
