These retired teachers, administrators and staff toured Middletown Area High School one last time before the 52-year-old school is demolished this summer.
Administrators and staff arranged the special tour on Saturday, April 23, providing each participant with a section of the wooden bleachers from the gym as a remembrance.
A new school, under construction on campus, is scheduled to open next school year.
The MAHS Alumni Association is offering two tours for former students and community members from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 7 and Saturday, May 14.
