Meadow Grove H. S. Gives 25 Diplomas
Certificates of Award and Scholarships are Presented
Meadow Grove, Neb., May 16—Special to The News: Commencement was held in Meadow Grove high school Monday night with Newton W. Gaines as the speaker. Despite the fact that a terrific wind, rain, and hail storm visited this section between 7 and 8 p.m. the school auditorium was filled to capacity with the parents and friends of the class of 1940.
The 25 seniors in caps and gowns were seated on the stage. Seventeen of the graduates are from farm homes, seven from the town of Meadow Grove, and one from Battle Creek. Judging by the sentiment expressed by various graduates none of the members of the class is likely to attend college next year unless given an opportunity to work for room and board.

Meadow Grove Teachers 1925—1926
Meadow Grove public schools will open for a nine month term on Monday, Aug. 31st. The rooms in the building are being thoroughly cleaned, paint applied where necessary, so that the entire building will be in first-class shape when school opens. There is nothing gained in letting a building run down, and it should be noted that the Board of Education is taking good care of the building entrusted to their keeping and thereby saving money for the taxpayers. The following is a list of the teachers for the ensuing school year: Supt. L. L. Spotts, Meadow Grove, Nebr.; Prin. High School Clarence J. Rosenau, Hastings, Nebr.; Normal Training and Domestic Science Mary Roach, Maywood, Nebr.; English, Latin, French Ruth Ringland, Wayne, Nebr.; 7th and 8th Grades Beatrice Higbee, Meadow Grove, Nebr.; 5th and 6th Grades Frances Snimonek, Wilber, Nebr.; 3rd and 4th Grades Charlotte Hayden, Meadow Grove, Nebr.; Primary Aleda Eggleston, Elgin, Nebr.
