A Big Piece of History now in Place at Adair Co. Primary Center

Click to A Big Piece of History going into Adair Co. Primary Center for a brief history on the Bell's Significance, with photo(s)
By Ed Waggener
The bell from Columbia High School is not permanently in place in its new home as the central art piece in the Adair County Primary Center foyer. Its move from the Maintenance Department's 350 Gen. John Adair Drive building, where Larry Johnson and members of the Adair County FFA carefully restored it, took place this morning between 9:30amCT, and 10:45amCT.
The accompanying photo album shows some of the highlights of the move. The bell will be rung on the opening of the school year each year, starting Wednesday, August 15, 2013, and each year thereafter, and for Christmas vacation, or to ring when the school has a very, very special occasion to celebrate, then Col. Casey Principal and now ACPC Principal Patty Jones said when the idea was first being considered.
The move brings to fruition an idea first conceived by Adair County School Board Chairman Floyd Burton, who thought the bell would make an important symbol of the great heritage of the Adair County school system.
