Record Observer - - School -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Queen Anne’s County High School Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion and the Queen Anne’s County High School PTSA are jointly spon­sor­ing an open house to cel­e­brate the 50th an­niver­sary of Queen Anne’s County High School. This event will be held at the high school on Sun­day, Oct. 8, from 2 to 4 p.m. Fol­low­ing the open house, the QACHS Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion will host an in­for­mal gath­er­ing at the Amer­i­can Le­gion in Cen­tre­ville for food, drink, and con­ver­sa­tion.

The open house will of­fer tours of the school, pic­ture dis­plays of the school’s his­tor y, and a con­tin­u­ous video pre­sen­ta­tion of shared mem­o­ries from for­mer stu­dents and ad­min­is­tra­tors. The Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion in­vites the pub­lic to join mem­bers as they take a walk down mem­ory lane and cel­e­brate this his­toric mile­stone in our county. The open­ing of the Queen Anne’s County Com­pre­hen­sive High School was sig­nif­i­cant in sev­eral ways. It was the forg­ing of four high schools into one, the first year of in­te­gra­tion in the county, and a high school com­bin­ing aca­demic fo­cus as well as vo­ca­tional fo­cus that was quite unique and pro­gres­sive for its time.

This will be the cul­mi­nat­ing event of a busy Home­com­ing week­end. Wear green and gold to cel­e­brate 50 years of “The Pride of the East­ern Shore.”
