This book promotes a positive school spirit and sheds light on the school’s history, going back to the late 1800’s extending up to present day. It’s an ongoing piece of living history.
A fun historical record of the students, the eras, and the city of Colorado Springs, Colorado, who knew there was a ghost who haunts the school auditorium and that the surrounding area was once home to the Ute Indians?
But, even better than that, this book will introduce you to some of the students that once roamed the halls at Harrison, including “Oppie”, a self-professed James Dean sort of guy. Athletes Ron Roehrich and Oren McClure will share their stories and tales from their adventures both on and off the field at Harrison High.
A book that anyone who has ever gone to high school will enjoy! This book is an accumulation of research material gathered from the local library, school yearbooks and newspaper clippings and from personal interviews with those who’ve attended the school.
