Voice of the People:

Jackson Alumni is currently researching the township schools for a book to be done by October of this year.

Going back 100 years - We have F.M. Goldsborough as teacher at Thelma, One-room Jackson School in 1901-02.

In 1902-03 he was Principal at Jackson Center. Also, in 1903-04 and 1904-05 he was the Principal there.

In 1905-06 we find he became the Principal at Chesterton High School.

Indeed, it appears he had over 55 years of teaching and administration. What a wonderful story he might have written about education experiences he had from the one-room schools to schools in the 1950's!

We too, are proud to have had him in the beginning of the Jackson Township Schools.
