Reunion for all former Tryon High students set for July 22 by Leah Justice

Whether it’s “Elmo” (the Tryon Tiger), freshmen being thrown over the bushes, eating Gertrude Taylor’s cooking or riding on the bus with Ethel Mae Morrison, many area residents have strong

memories of their time at Tryon High School. “A Day to Remember,” a reunion for anyone who attended Tryon High, is planned for Sunday, July 22 at 3 p.m. at Harmon Field. Music will be provided

by deejay Bob Followay (50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and current music), and guests will share a potluck dinner. All who ever attended Tryon schools are invited to attend the reunion and bring a potluck dish.

It’s been 20 years since Tryon High School existed. The last class graduated in 1992 with 32 graduates. From 1989 until 1992, students at Tryon and Polk Cen(Continued on page 6)

Peter Eisenbrown, organizer of the Summer Tracks concerts in Tryon, announced last week that the concert scheduled for Friday, July 13 was postponed because of rain to Friday, July 20. The concert will feature the Marc Yaxley Trio and will be held at Rogers Park in Tryon at 7:30 p.m. Summer Tracks concerts are free, but donations are welcome.

TFAC houses ready for demolition Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) officials said the three TFAC-owned houses slated for demolition near the center’s main facility on Melrose Ave. have been stripped of salvageable items and are ready to be torn down. Demolition was scheduled to begin July 9 but was delayed, possibly by weather, TFAC said. Other temporary signs of a landscape in transition, according to TFAC, are the

shells of the three buildings and the mud patches in the land left from the removal of several trees. Changes to the TFAC property began in June as Habitat for Humanity harvested building supplies for home construction and items for its Landrum resale store. Asbestos abatement in all

New Morris ransom note; new letter from Morris Oh my goodness, Tippy said that people are going in and out of the Tryon Fine Arts Center talking about a big gala. I’ve never been to a gala before, but I always enjoy seeing my friends attend performances at TFAC. Tippy heard that it all starts on Saturday, July 28 – that’s the night of the gala. There’s gonna be pictures and paintings that look just like me for everyone to see… and the biggest thing that night will be the auction to help raise more money to bring me home. I love TFAC and can’t believe I won’t be able to see the summer show, “Seussical.” I will miss seeing my young friends have fun on stage. I sure do love those kids. – Morris Editor’s note: Kidnappers asked that this letter run on Monday instead of Friday to ensure community memgers were paying attention.

• Tryon High (continued from page 1)

tral high schools attended separate schools but played sports together as the Polk County Wolverines while waiting for the new Polk County High School to be constructed. The first class of Polk County High School graduated in 1993. The days of Tryon public schools began in 1885 in a small building located near where Stott’s Ford is today. Tryon School was moved in 1906 to a new building, which is now Tryon Town Hall. In 1923, the old building was sold and a new school with pillars on the front was built on top of the hill where the current Tryon Elementary School is today. The town purchased 16 acres for $3,000 and constructed the school for the 280 elementary (grammar) school students and 45 high school students. At that time, students attended grades one through 11. The Tryon school building went through several additions. The first was in 1928, when the old auditorium was converted into five classrooms and a library and a new auditorium was built on the opposite wing. A cafeteria was

opened in what was later known as the old band room. Prior to the cafeteria, students were served soup and cocoa by the PTA, which was organized in 1921. In 1935 a new gymnasium was completed (it was later known as the old gym and has since been demolished for a parking lot). A large room in the gym was used a shop class. In 1938, a commercial department was added, financed by the PTA and interested residents. It was also at this time that the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs financed the formation of the Tryon School Board.

• Tryon High (continued from page 6)

The 12th grade was added in 1947 and Stearns High School in Columbus closed, which brought more students to Tryon. The high school moved into a new building in 1952. During this time the community also improved the playground, added lighting to the football field and installed 1,000 bleacher seats. At this time Tryon’s football field was known as one of the best in the state. In 1957, the high school was completely in the new addition connected to the elementary school, which included a cafeteria on the second floor and a new gymnasium. In 1960, many Columbus students left the Tryon schools because of the opening of Polk Central High School in Mill Spring. In 1965, Embury School closed and Tryon schools became desegregated. In the mid-1960s, Tryon residents passed a bond referendum to

build a new high school at Harmon Field on a site donated by Mr. and Mrs. Willis E. Kuhn. In September 1968, students moved into the new building (what is now the Harmon Field Community Center and Tryon Arts and Crafts). The new school was dedicated in living memory to the Kuhns. Also honored was Geoffrey Tennant, who donated the money for the openair gym, named in memory of his father, Colin McKenzie Tennant Jr. In 1983, Arthur Farwell donated money for the Arthur and Elizabeth Farwell Computer Science and Mathematics Center. Kindergarten was added as an optional grade in 1974. Enrollment figures over the years increased to a high in the mid-1960s of 930 in grades 1-12; by 1992 Tryon schools had 600 students in grades K through 12. Some of Tryon faculty (elementary and high school) included Sally Jo Carter, Steve Aldred, Gary Gibbs, Peggy Carter, Beth McCallister, Charles and Annette Stafford, Mable Cowan,

Business has been great during our camp season. We have 20-40 campers riding each day in lessons and they have loved it. We are looking to expand our riding school after the camp season is over and are looking for riders of all ages and experience to join our lessons.

One thing I wish everyone knew about this business: I wish more people knew how affordable and informative our lessons are. We strive to provide inexpensive yet informative lessons to the Carolinas and hope that with our low rates, students will have the opportunity to have an equestrian experience without the financial burden. Whether you are experienced in the show ring or have never ridden, we have the horses and lessons to fit your needs. Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: We offer a unique opportunity to

participate in affordable group or private lessons that are personalized to the rider’s needs and desires. Whether you hope to compete on the show circuit or just want to spend time around the horses, we have the specialized lesson for you.

advice to young entrepreneurs: If you are driven and hardworking, you can make any dream a reality. You must make sacrifices, take chances and give it your heart and soul but with a little faith, it can be accomplished. my first job: Working student position at a small local farm back in my hometown of Macomb, Mich. Your role model (in business or in life generally): My parents – they are dedicated to any decision they make, they have compassion for others and are allaround genuine, honest people. The key to a successful business: Integrity. Without integrity you compromise the traits needed to run a business.

Back to School Bash wins Polk County Community Foundation grant When Tryon United Methodist Church inaugurated the Back to School Bash last August, organizers set their sights high: a cost-free celebration for students and their families throughout the community, with food, games and air-filled fun for the kids, resources for their parents and even free back-to-school haircuts. The congregation accumulated

new or little-used winter coats for school-age children and they gathered up enough school supplies to fill tote bags for the first 100 students. Organizers said it was a great beginning to what they hoped would become a community tradition. A recent $2,700 grant from the Polk County Community Foundation’s Kirby Civic Events

Fund has made that hope a reality. “This is a great gift to the entire community,” said Bob Bailey, one of the original organizers of the event. “Under the foundation’s sponsorship, the 2012 Back to School Bash will be able to expand its reach in every way, meeting the needs of more students and providing fun and fellowship for more

families, regardless of need. We’re extremely grateful for this opportunity.” The Back to School Bash will take place at Tryon United Methodist Church on Saturday, Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. For more information, call the church office at 828-859-9218. – article submitted by Nancy Hiley

Known for her whimsical practicality, Seagroves makes tiles, utilitarian vessels, statues and abstracts, all with a combination of clays students will have an opportunity to use. After students spend an evening shaping and molding their pieces, Seagroves will take them away to be fired. Two weeks later, students will return to glaze (paint) their projects. After the glazing, the workshop attendees will come for a wine reception to see their finished projects.

“The last time you may have had your hands on clay was back in elementary school when you made a pinch pot, ash tray or paperweight,” organizers said. “You will take a step back in time as you let your hands do the work, and you will find yourself in a relaxed state of mind for perhaps the first time in a while. It’s a great mini-vacation right here in town.” All ages are welcome with a parent. Call 828-749-9698 to register for this or upcoming workshops. – article submitted by Joni Mahaffey-Rauschenbach

AARP offers driver safety class for educators July 19 AARP is celebrating teachers and school personnel this summer by offering its four-hour driver safety class at a reduced price for retired teachers and educators. Bill Boyd, driver safety instructor for AARP, will teach the class on Thursday, July 19 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at The Meeting Place. Call The Meeting Place at 828-894-0001 to sign up. The AARP Driver Safety classroom course is the nation’s first and largest course designed for drivers 50 and older. Students will learn safety strategies to help maintain their confidence behind the wheel. In addition, those who take the course might qualify for discounts on their car insurance. Safe driving is a challenge for all drivers, AARP safety instructors said. For older drivers, risks to safe driving may arise from changes in vision, hearing, reaction time and judgment/ cognition. Although physical and mental abilities vary considerably among older individuals, older people as a group are more likely than younger people to experience health impairments that affect their driving skills and may make their driving unsafe. Traffic safety experts have said they are concerned there will be increasing numbers of “at-risk” drivers as the population ages. In 2005, people age 65 and older comprised approximately 15 percent of all licensed drivers

and 15 percent of all traffic fatalities. Although older Americans have the lowest crash rate per licensed driver of all driving age groups, older people injure more easily than their younger counterparts and are more likely to die when injured in a crash. In 1979, AARP developed the Driver Safety Program. The program has helped millions of drivers age 50+ learn safety strategies and tips to help them adapt to physical and mental changes related to aging. Courses are taught nationwide both in traditional classrooms by AARP-trained volunteers, as well as through an interactive online course. A nominal fee is charged for the courses. The course is designed to help participants: • Understand the effects of aging on driving. • Learn driving strategies that take into account the effects of aging. • Identify the most common crash situations faced by older drivers. • Reduce chances of having a crash. • Update their knowledge of today’s roads ,traffic laws, vehicles and other road users. • Think about how they drive and identify when driving may no longer be safe.
