MARKING THE SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY F GARRIGAN HIGH SCHOOL A FEW IMPORTANT FACTS FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY'S INFORMATION Rev. Cecil H. Prledmann Superintendent Garrigan high school's modern, one-story high school building and adjoining athletic facilities are shown here. The high school building In the foreground houses the educational rooms, study hall, library and offices at the left, while the area on the right contains the hot lunch set-up and gymnasium-auditorium. At the upper right is Garrigan Field, where the football team plays its home games each fall, while at the left of that is the baseball field, rated one of the finest in the entire area. GARRIGAN IS YOU! Garrigan High School is fully accredited by the Iowa State Department of Public Instruction and the North Central Association of Secondary Schools, a regional association accrediting high schools in 19 midwestern states. Modern young Americans, in a modern school, prepare conscientiously for their future. Sponsored In The Interest Of Better Community Understanding By WHAT DOES GARRIGAN MEAN TO OUR COMMUNITY? 1 — Most of all Garrlgan's aim is to provide a well-balanced, God- centered, educational program producing civic-minded young adults. 2 — Garrigan's existence means a great savings of tax dollars to this community. State Department of Education statistics state that the average statewide cost per pupil, per year, for high school students was $631. Last year Garrigan educated 478 pupils. On the basis of the state per pupil average costs, these pupils if educated at public expense would have added a potential $301,618 to public school costs. (These figures do not include the savings made the tax-paying public by operation of parochial grade schools). 3 — Were it not for the presence of Garrigan High Schr>ol (and parochial grade schools), a vast building program would already have been required in order to accommodate these additional students. This is an economic fact that is not always understood. No public tax funds support Garrigan. 4 — Garrigan employs over 30 full-time employees. This payroll is a small industry in itself, and pumps vigor into the local economy. 5 — Garrigan students come from an area encompassing all of southern Kossuth county, and parts of Palo Alto, Humboldt and Hancock counties. The parents of these students take a genuine interest in the school activities, and as a result come to enjoy the various social, cultural and athletic aspects of school life, centered in Algona, and in turn come to know Algona perhaps better than would otherwise be the case.
