Anissa Hass is one of very few alumni members who shared their school pictures and scrapbooks with me to scan when I was working on the Manning Schools history book in 2008.
I know there are tens of thousands of other great old school pictures out there - mostly unidentified - so if you want your old school pix digitized, identified, and preserved then please e-mail me.
