Adams Township Schools – Over a Century of Excellence is a solid and incredibly comprehensive guide chronicling the people and events that began a tradition of excellence and high expectations that remain today in the Adams Township School District. The authors have taken great pains to meticulously research and verify content with personal interviews whenever possible and by cross-referencing information with hundreds of historical archives. They have researched all of the school board minutes from 1894 to 2010 and included many of them that define the evolutionary process of not only this school system, but public school administration in Michigan throughout the 20th Century.
But even more importantly, Adams Township Schools – Over a Century of Excellence is a story of hope as a community comes together during very difficult and challenging times with a spirit of determination and pride to keep a school system viable; even in the worst of times, “their resiliency has always prevailed.” It is well worth the read to see the historical facts unfold into this poignant story of a legacy of hope and excellence as begun by Fred and Cora Jeffers.
The Rugani’s pride and passion for their alma mater is evident, producing an account to help preserve the history of their local school system. Adams Township Schools –Over a Century of Excellence is a testament to the education, work ethic and determination instilled in them from within the walls of Jeffers High School.
