A great project to help keep our memories alive longer. Schools such as Northwest Mississippi Community College are starting to digitize printed yearbooks.
Northwest Mississippi Community College (NWCC) has its roots in the system of agricultural schools set up throughout this rural state in the early years of the 20th century. First organized as Tate County Agricultural High School in 1915, the school offered college level courses in the fall of 1926. This is a collection of yearbooks from 1929 through 2012 except for nine years after 1930 to 1940 when the nation was suffering under the Great Depression.
So how are schools like this doing it? Here’s an article from the Sun Harold explaining the process. As I’m sure you can imagine, it involves quite a lot of work!
Will your school be the next to get in on this innovative movement?
