School Directors Elect Teachers – Of great importance to residents of Warwick township was the announcement made last week by the school board. It decided to establish two township high schools, one at Rothsville and the other in the village of Warwick. The state gives an appropriation for only one high school in a township, but as Warwick is so large, one high school, even if centrally located, would be very inconvenient to reach for many pupils. Thus it is believed, that two high schools will prove a greater benefit. In the village of Warwick another story will be added to the school house, and at Rothsville a two story structure will be built. It is the intention to open the schools at the beginning of the next term. It will require the services of two principals but they have not yet been chosen.

Last year it cost the township about $1100 for tuition of pupils who attended Akron and Lititz high schools.

The board organized as follows: President Dr. H. Walter; secretary, Andrew Gochenour; treasurer, P.B. Kotroth. The other members of the board are Abner Risser, Amos Oberholtzer, C.B. Risser.

The following teachers were elected:

  • First Warwick N.E. Reist
  • Second Warwick Katie Bixler
  • Third Warwick Janet Zeller
  • Lexington Grace K. Enck
  • Union Willis W. Gibbel
  • Brunnerville Primary Carrie Eshleman
  • Brunnerville Graded Gertie Dietrich
  • Pine Hill Clayton Zartman
  • Hubers Anna Lane
  • Buchs Hattie Hess
  • Fairview H.H. Minnich
  • Kissel Hill D.W. Dietrich
  • Rome Joseph Kofroth
  • Owl Hill Carrie B. Hess
  • Sunnyside Elizabeth Dashler
  • Rothsville Upper Maud Kreider
  • Rothsville Lower Iva Martin
  • Rothsville Central Mamie Kofroth
  • Rothsville Grammar Joseph
  • Mohn Millport Paul Royer

ROTHSVILLE NOTES – Rothsville is now getting what it should have had long before this; and that is a township high school. The directors of the township should meet with congratulations for this grand move, as we will now be on an equal basis with our neighboring townships in the line of education. A new building will be erected and work will be begun in a very short time. The principalship is vacant and a good teacher is wanted by the board.
