Pillars of the Past
During the 1977-78 school year, the Webb City High School Student Senate voted to place the pillars that stood in the three main entrances of the old high school, located on Broadway, on the front lawn of their new High School. These “Pillars of the Past” were to be a lasting reminder of the rich educational heritage of the community. The Student Senate fully funded the project by raising funds from students, families, alumni, community businesses and patrons. Their goal was achieved and the pillars were dedicated on May 10, 1981, and have since been a source of pride in our community.
The pillars of any great organization are rooted in service and are constant reminders of those who have laid the foundation for those to follow. Great achievements are nurtured with the cooperation of many with a common vision working toward a common goal, which is the continued success of the students they have served.
It is with great pride and thankfulness that we have chosen the following citizens as Pillars of the Past. Their hard work and dedication have helped lay a solid foundation upon which the Webb City R-7 School District continues to build.
