“Knowledge is the only jewel that will not decay” is what’s written on an old booklet for Flat Creek School that Gladys Barr Reeves found in her archive.

This “School Souvenir” for the class of 1920 is similar to a yearbook but without the photographs. Miss Ida Armke was the school’s only teacher.

Along with pages of poetry about schooling, the booklet also lists the school’s pupils. In eighth grade were Vera Bremer and Annie Mosel. In sixth grade were Alton Lindeman, Julia Page, Herman Morisey, Ottilie Hageman, Marven Latham, Carrie Smith, Johnnie Mosel, and Teressa Watson. In fifth grade were Otis Lindeman, Adolph Bindseil, Wayne Lindeman, Lavinia Bindseil, Annie Latham, Alvin Hauffler, Goldie Latham, Edward Morisey, and Mary Page. In fourth grade were Rudy Preiss, Howard Townsend, and Ida Smith. In third grade were Fannie Latham, Myrtle Morisey, Gladys Latham, and Ernst Hauffler. In second grade were Lola Armke, Isabelle Page, Lena Latham, Thelma Latham, Edna Hony, Johnnie Doris West, and Willie Smith. In first grade were Edwin Preiss, Lena Morisey, and Monroe Hohenberger.
