Thanks to a big donation, students at Poland schools can learn the history of their town.
The daughters of superintendent Robert L. Zorn, Debbie Becherer and Pattie Kelley, have donated their father’s latest book, “Images of America, Poland” to area schools.
Bercherer donated a classroom set of the books to the Poland Middle School social studies department and Kelley donated two books to every school library.
“We are very grateful to have this new set of Dr. Zorn’s latest book. A previous contributor gave us a set of his earlier book “Triumph and Tradition,” said eighth-grade Social Studies teacher Nick Blanch. “This is the time of year that we do a unit on local history, so we are most appreciative of their generous donation.”
“This is another great way to teach our children an appreciation of the past. These books are a tangible way of preserving our local heritage,” added Karen Russo, Poland Middle School librarian.
All the proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit the Poland Historical Society.
