November 2nd

James Kenyon, the author of Golden Rule Days: History and Recollections of 109 Closed Kansas High Schools, will be at the Clay Center Public Library for a presentation on Saturday, November 2, at 11:00 am. Longford High School is one of 109 schools with stories included in the book.

Author James Kenyon, a native of Bogue, Kansas, collected stories from student alumni of closed high schools as he traveled through every county in the state, documenting 109 institutions. Kenyon consulted county historical records as well as interviewing former students and teachers, culminating in unique school profiles that include information ranging from the growth of school classes and programs to songs and traditions.
