Continuing rewrite from “Then and Now” written by the Temple-Belton Retired Teachers Association as a 1976 Bicentennial project, plans were initiated to build a high school in 1904.
Apparently the building was needed for students of the many private schools in operation in the City of Belton.
Both the Dr. L.H. Hubbard interview and George Tyler’s “History of Bell County” refer to the number of private schools in operation in the city.

A couple of weeks ago, the Journal ran an article about Danielle Fuchs, 12, who was so touched by the tragedy in Moore, Okla., that she insisted on seeing it herself and then made a resolution to raise money to help those affected. She set a goal of $2,000 and set out going door to door in Belton neighborhoods asking for donations. But she didn’t stop there. She has also hosted raffles for donated items from businesses around town that found her heart and her goal worthwhile. She sold tickets for drawings including Scentsy items, dinner for 20 and about 30 other prizes. She set up a table at Market Days with her mother, Shauna, who makes and sells her own line of jewelry.
