NACS plans to celebrateCarroll High School ‘era’


No one year is more important than another. With that idea in mind, Northwest Allen County Schools is planning to celebrate an “era” beginning in 2017.

The 2017-18 school year marks the first of three 50-year anniversaries for Northwest Allen County Schools — the 50th anniversary of the final classes at Huntertown High School and Arcola High School.

That is followed by the 50th anniversary of the first graduating class of Carroll High School. The building, however, wasn’t complete yet and those students attended Huntertown High School. Which means, the following year will represent the 50th anniversary of the opening of Carroll High School.

That’s a lot to celebrate.

“We don’t celebrate often enough and this is something worth celebrating,” NACS Superintendent Chris Himsel said. “It’s a neat project and we are excited about some of the things that will go on.”

First, the district is collecting names of those individuals who were a part of those particular graduating classes.

The district has posted a link to a survey online where individuals can submit information and provide suggestions on ideas for celebrations.

The survey can be found on the both the main district page — — as well as the Carroll High School site —
