FTLComm - Tisdale - November 11, 1999

Tisdale School Division and their Director of Education Tim Tarala took time off Wednesday from their board meeting to pay their last respects to the remains of the now destroyed Tisdale Unit Composite School.

Mr. Markwart was surprised to discover an unused note book amidst the rubble and a few obsolete text books.

It was a big decision and difficult matter to engineer for this board and their predecessors who for so many years knew that this building had to be replaced yet so many of the present board and the members of the community at large, associate
their high school experiences with the building that for decades symbolised both their youth and to some extent, what they consider helped to form what they are. Hard to put into words the feelings that can be read on the face of Mr. Markwart.
