My Manning history helper, Connie Petersen, keeps finding all kinds of interesting Manning history. Fortunately, a few Manning people shared pictures and other information with me over the decades, so now I'm able to put little pieces of the Manning puzzle together...if only more had shared in the past and if only more would share what little is left today.

Manning Man Recognized
Superintendent A.L. Boyer, of the Manning Schools, has recently been invited to accept the superintendency of the Atlantic Schools at a handsome increase in salary, and has accepted.
Mr. Boyer has been at Manning for four years, and during that time has raised the schools of that city to a high rank in the state. As an instance, out of 163 high schools in the State Normal Training course, Manning took first honors in 1915, second in 1916, first again in 1917, and will rank high in 1918.
Mr. Boyer has been given repeated increases in salary during his stay in Manning, which is a fitting testimonial to the esteem in which the people hold him, but the Atlantic position offers so much in the way of an increase that Manning was unable to hold him longer.
