Panel 12 - Education, Business and Industry

The Garaway Local School System was formed with the merger of the four community schools. The name, Garaway, was created from letters in three of the district townships (Sugarcreek, Auburn, Wayne.) Look in the panel for the mascots: Baltic Eagles, Dundee Bulldogs, Garaway Pirates, Miller Avenue Huskies, Ragersville Buccaneers and Third Street Hornets. The Third Street elementary school building no longer exists, though a commemorative brick arch with engraved bricks, a small brick carving of the school, the cornerstone and the original cornerstone plaque marks the location on the Superb Industries property. Notice the varied occupations represented by the graduates and the items in the forefront of the panel. The figures in the top far left of this panel are telling a story about going to school often repeated by the elders in our families and communities. Can you figure it out? Find the quote, “Jet Packman, Mysterious Plant, Spotted Again and Much More.” To what does this refer?
