Remarks
Jerry Voorhis was in large part responsible for our school. He donated the first portion of it which would later be combined with the donation by Mr. Kellogg. An official ceremony was held on June 20, 1983 in his memory. The ecological reserve, part of his donation, is considered a significant ecological reserve containing four amphibians, 38 mammals, 100 birds, 12 reptiles and 167 native plants.
