Nichols Elementary-Middle turned 100 years old, drawing parents, students, alumni and the community to its Centennial Celebration. The event’s theme was Strolling through the Decades: An Evening of Excellence. The original school, still in use, was constructed in 1910. Students started their education in the facility in 1911. An addition later was constructed.
Guests could stroll through the hallways and classrooms to see displays and photos from Nichols decade-by-decade. The formal program included music and alumni stories of when they attended Nichols. Celebrated alumni speakers included Karen P. Ridgeway, Superintendent for Academics.
