PCHS gets first delivery

HISTORY train Luray

January 11, 1962 — Mail delivery to Page County High School was inaugurated on Monday morning, Jan. 8, as Alva May, rural carrier for the Shenandoah Post Office, was the first to place the first delivered mail in the new super-size mail box located in front of the school.

Permission to deliver the mail directly to the school building was given by the post office department at the request of William H. Wood, principal of Page County High School, and through the efforts of V. Clyde Griffith, postmaster at Shenandoah.

The huge mail box was the joint project of the metal work classes of the Industrial Arts department.
