Drury Class of 1973 Gifts Bench and Plaque to Old High School

Community Submission

The bench is located near the former main entrance at Colegrove Park Elementary School next to the nurse's office.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — One of the last classes to graduate from the old Drury High School made sure their time there is not forgotten.  
The class of 1973 recently held its 50th class reunion and, as part of their celebration, gifted a bench that is located Colegrove Park Elementary School.  
Colegrove on East Main Street was originally Drury High until the "new" high school was built on South Church Street. The class of 1974 was the last to graduate from there. 
The bench is in the hall near what used to be the main entrance of Drury, and is located outside of the nurse's office for students to have a place to wait until Nurse Jill can see them.  The bench's plaque notes it is a gift of the Drury High School Class of 1973.
The North Adams Public Schools thanks the class of 1973 for their donation.
