the centennial mile-

stone.

That’s why when

educational institutions turn

100 years old, it’s reason to cel-

ebrate.

This special splash section

youth has always been a pri-

ority to Georgetown residents,

but itwasn’t until February 27,

1917, when the school district

became an independent entity.

Inthissection, youwill learn

about the history of the school

district, read about howschool

leaders, parents and students

view the quality of education

the district provides, and look

into the future of what the

next 100 years might bring.

teaching and edifying our

children, inspiring them to

become leaders in their com-

munities.
