Conventions to Nominate CHS Board Candidates in 1915


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 6/17/1915.

Mass Conventions Called

Mass conventions of the people of all the magisterial districts of the county regardless of politics have been called to meet Saturday of this week, June 19th, for the purpose of nominating a candidate for member of the Board of Director of the Calhoun County High School.  The call was issued Thursday by County Superintendent Chenoweth and the Presidents of the various Boards of Education, and provides for conventions being held at the following places:  Sheridan district, Brooksville; Center district, Grantsville; Sherman district, Henrietta; Lee district, Daniels Run; Washington district, Minnora.

It may appear strange that so short a time is given for the people to think over whom they want on the Board, but in order to lay the levy this year it is necessary that the Board be elected and the votes canvassed before the first Monday in July.
