COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS BREAK - This year we are counting down the 18 school days until break by sharing some facts about Edward Lee McClain High School! The facts and pictures shared each day may be familiar to some, but we have many in our community who may not know the uniqueness of our high school. Even if you are familiar with the history, we think that along the way you may learn some new facts and see some unique pictures that aren't often shared. Day 18 - The marble staircase - It seems appropriate to end the series by highlighting one of the most special things that students get to experience at the end of their high school career. Some may not know that the Jefferson Street door near the staircase was once the main entrance of the high school. As shared by a 1938 graduate, it was widely accepted that the stairs were sacred. As shared by a 1949 graduate, students knew that even touching the stairs would result in a crack. Current students understand and appreciate the rich tradition of the marble staircase and eagerly await the opportunity to descend it on the evening of Baccalaureate. One of the last things that students see as they near the bottom of the staircase are the portraits of Edward Lee and Lulu McClain. Prior to the addition of those portraits, not one portrait of either of them hung in McClain High School. Quite possibly that was even more evidence of the humbleness that they both exhibited. The unveiling of the portraits, donated by their daughter Helen McClain Young, and commemorative service was held on December 5, 1947. In his address, F. R. Harris talked of the strength that Edward Lee McClain had - strength of body, mind, and spirit. He said, β€œWhen you gaze upon his portrait, I am sure that you will be able to see strength in every feature.” The pictures show: 1. The displayed portraits during the December 5, 1947 ceremony 2./3. The portraits today 4. The Christmas tree adorned in purple and gold at the bottom of the staircase Thank you so much for following our countdown! We would like to give recognition and show appreciation to those who have been working behind the scenes. The posters/researchers - Quincey Gray, Superintendent and Matt Shelton, MHS Principal Those who have answered questions and shared pictures - Mrs. Sue Ann Baird, Mrs. Susan Thompson, Mrs. Susan Long, Mr. David King, and Mr. Jeff Pence - Thank you! Merry Christmas! #legacyofleadership #mcclaintigers #edwardleemcclain

COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS BREAK - This year we are counting down the 18 school days until break by sharing some facts about Edward Lee McClain High School! The facts and pictures shared each day may be familiar to some, but we have many in our community who may not know the uniqueness of our high school. Even if you are familiar with the history, we think that along the way you may learn some new facts and see some unique pictures that aren't often shared. Day 17 - The bell tower - Many people may not know that the bell inside of the bell tower located in front of Greenfield Elementary is the oldest item on campus. The bell came from the C.W. Hanks Foundry in Cincinnati. Originally, the bell hung in the belfry that topped the Seminary Building on South Washington Street. When the Seminary closed, the Union Board of Education acquired the building and the bell. Over time, the building could not accommodate the needs of the community and was sold to Edward Lee McClain Manufacturing Company, later incorporated as the American Pad and Textile Company. At that point, the school system moved into the Central Building on Jefferson Street. It remained in the bell tower there until the building was razed in 1923 to make room for the new elementary school. In 1964, McClain High School celebrated its golden anniversary as it had been 50 years since the laying of the cornerstone. Superintendent Emeritus F. R. Harris donated the bell and the memorial bell tower to the school district. The donation held extra special meaning for Harris as he served as the bell boy for Greenfield High School in 1897 and 1898 earning $.25 per week for his service. As the Class of 1964 walked across the field, Harris rang the bell, commemorating the 120th anniversary of the Old School Bell. It is exciting that the bell is still in working order! Greenfield Elementary kindergarten students ring the bell when they start school and then again as seniors right before graduation. In addition, athletic teams ring the bell after achieving a win. F.R. Harris desired that the bell would offer glad tidings that all is well with the world, and it undoubtedly continues to do that today. The pictures show: 1. F.R. Harris and a close-up of the bell 2. Harris ringing the bell on Thursday, May 28, 1964. Yes, graduation occurred on a Thursday evening! 3. A view of the campus prior to the bell tower being constructed - The picture would have been taken between 1960 and 1964 as the Duncan McArthur Building (the building located where Greenfield Elementary is today) was constructed in 1960. 4. The plaque that is affixed to the bell tower still today #legacyofleadership #mcclaintigers #edwardleemcclain
