Brown's Bench

Bowling Green finally has a modern junior high/middle school.
As a member of the freshman class that was "held back" in the junior high school when the new high school opened in the fall of 1964, all I can say is "It's about time."
Thanks to a Board of Education and administration that finally pushed hard for the facility.
Thanks to the voters who agreed to foot the bill.
A salute to the faculty, staff and students who made the best of antiquated facilities for far too many years.
The now retired junior high building was crammed to the rafters with students in the fall of 1964. There was some relief many years later when an addition was built at the high school and the freshman "promoted."
Reading through the special section in Wednesday's (Aug. 26) paper, one gets a sense of pride among those who are learning about the facility as they go about their daily routines. The seventh graders don't know what they missed, the eighth graders probably think the seventh graders are spoiled.
In a few weeks high school and middle school students will be able to showcase their talents and abilities in a modern auditorium.
An open house is scheduled Sunday from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Take the time to visit your investment. It's a big step forward for Bowling Green's youngsters.
