THROWBACK THURSDAY. Continuing on from last week's post - fast forward to 1931. Gravette School District is starting to grow more and more! With this growth, two trucks were purchased from Cato Chevrolet and L.A. Baugh. They were altered so that they could start transporting children! Although we do not know Gravette’s first bus driver from that time, we do know that in 1938 Gravette hired Homer Fansler to drive a bus to bring pupils from west of Gravette to school! And two years after that hired Haskell Jackson and E. M. Berry to drive two new 45-passenger school buses. Below are pics of what the buses might have looked like back then 🚍

THROWBACK THURSDAY. As graduation is right around the corner, let’s look back on Gravette’s first graduating class in 1908! The first school in the area which is now Gravette was the John Wesley Cromwell School, it began in 1878. Fast forward to 1898, the school was moved to the Covey-Kindley addition where a new brick building was erected in 1900 (pictured below). This was located in the area of the City Library and Civic Center. The first-ever graduating class was in 1908 with only 3 graduates (names pictured below). The principal at that time was W. A. Hunt. Now, fast forward to the graduating class of 2022 and we have 124 seniors! 🎓 HUGE thank you to the Gravette Historical Museum for partnering with us and providing us with Gravette’s rich history 🧡

New segment alert ❗ Throwback Thursdays - where we throw it back to Gravette Schools and the history it's been through. To start us off, we have a picture from Wayne King - #32. This was from the 94'-95' football season. Gravette was facing off against their main rivals Gentry! 👊The coaches at that time were Charlie Phillips, Duke Mobley, and Michael McClure. Wayne has a son, Jason King, who currently plays for the Gravette Lions football team. 🦁 Way to pass on that LION PRIDE Wayne! If you have any old photos, stories, or memories surrounding Gravette schools, WE WANT THEM. Please send all photos to facebook@gravetteschools.net. Have the subject line be "Throwback Thursdays". We can't WAIT to showcase the history of our schools and all who have been through its halls. 🧡 #experiencethepride
