EHHS First Faculty From Poly & Handley High Schools

The teachers marked transferred to EHHS from 2 nearby high schools to become members of EHHS' first faculty.  The page scans are from 1959 Poly and Handley High School yearbooks, the last year before EHHS opened fall 1959. 

Poly was a few miles SW of EH and Handley was a short distance East, near the Lake Arlington dam.  Our original faculty numbered about 36, for a student body of about 600 the first year which grew to about 1250 when we graduated in 1963.
