From the Sioux Valley News, Correctionville, Iowa, June 14, 1900: HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI. What Became of the Gradates of the Correctionville High School. President Edmunds of the board of education in making his address last year to the graduating class remarked upon the fact that no graduate of the Correctionville high school had ever become a loafer upon the streets or a discredit to the school. Mr. Edmunds afterward made a list of the alumni and took considerable pains to ascertain the whereabouts and employment of each, and has kindly allowed the NEWS to publish it herewith together with a little additional data. Seventy-one students have gone far enough to be classified in the llth grade but while practically no graduates left before receiving diplomas.
