Dateline: June 1924

“Officials, Parents, Students Gather in Spacious Building to Observe Ceremonies Marking Opening . . . The thousand persons who attended the dedication of the new high school, the hundreds who worked on the bonds and the building of it are ephemeral; but, according to the speakers, the great school structure will still be fulfilling its purpose 100 years from now, when they have passed away.” – Santa Barbara Morning Press, June 20, 1924

Happily, the school building is still here a century later.
