Here is your opportunity to share your own comments on the proposed Monroe School Name Change.
So sad to hear and read about this. Even though I did not personally attend Monroe, both may parents did. As a young child and even to this day, I will look at their Doctrine Yearbooks over and over again, just trying to imagine what their life was like growing up on West 7th and attending Monroe High in the early 60’s. The below was written in their Sr. Yearbook, over the school’s symbol “the ship” on the first page: To Monroe we pledge our love and loyalty forever, Sing the praise extol thy fame where good friends get together Voices rise, spirits soar, fly our banner high! Hail Monroe we promise to thy honor glorify! In future years where’re we go our mem’ries will burn bight Of hallowed halls and high school days and graduation night Our last wish before we go when the end is nigh With honor, strength, and dignity may God bless Monroe High!
