I went to school in Clinton for one year, 1955–56. I was in 6th grade. The school was on top of a hill from my house. There were some woods by the school and a path through the woods to get downtown. What was the name of the school and is it still there? Also my dad was plant manager of the chicken plant out of town. There was a small bridge we drove over and a small creek we kids would play in while waiting for my dad to get off work. Did the creek have a name?

Even though my family lived in Clinton for only a year, we kids haven’t forgot how pretty it was around there and all the mountains.
