HIGGS: Still in high school

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Some familiar names are starting to appear in Stan Horab’s research of 1935- 36 as it was noted that Maglie and O’Laughlin were high scorers for the NFHS Red and Gray basketball Team with a 48-12 win over LaSalle. NFHS Principal Lyndon Strough and Earl Sharp, principal of Trott exchanged hats at the Trott-Niagara game. Trott lost and NFHS won the City Championship.

The following year, NFHS adopted an official school ring and the basketball team won the City Championship for the third consecutive time. 1938 was a banner year as the high school celebrated its 50th graduating class. The year book was dedicated to the 49 preceding classes and to the seven graduates of the first class in 1889. On Wing Collar Day (still going strong it appears) the seniors won the 1926 trophy in the annual contest between seniors and juniors.

I hope you find all this interesting as we have one more week of it.

Norma Higgs serves with the Niagara Beautification Commission and Niagara Falls Block Club Council.
