Fifty years ago this week, the new Mineola High School on Armstrong Road opened its doors to its student body.
I was one of those students; I was a freshman. A copy of my schedule in one hand and a copy of the map of the school in the other.
Thousands and thousands and thousands of students have passed through those doors – and four of them right here – and a great number of them have made their mark on our village and our state, etc.
So, happy birthday Mineola High School.
