Planning 100th Anniversary

mcclain high school postcardFor almost 100 years Edward Lee and Theodosia McClain’s gifts have served the needs and been the focal point of Greenfield, OH. In 1914 the cornerstone was laid for what would become one of America’s most unique public high schools. A school that, in the words of E.L. McClain, would, “Serve the greatest good, for the greatest number, for the longest time.”

On September 1, 2, and 3, 1915 a celebration was held to dedicate Edward Lee McClain High School and its doors opened to help meet the needs of all students. On September 4, 5 and 6, 2015 the people with gather again to mark and honor the 100 years McClain High School  and the dream of the McClain family has fulfilled its motto.

To begin planning and preparing for the upcoming celebration a Centennial Committee was formed and a public meeting announced for Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 6:30 pm in the offices of the Greenfield Board of Education. The public is invited and encouraged to attend and offer its input and assistance.
