As they walked, the children compared the buildings of today with images in their booklets, “West Plains Long Ago." The first group, above, was led by teachers Sarah Cobb and Abbey Bonham, while another group, below, was treated to the history of downtown with City of West Plains Public Relations Coordinator Cody Sanders as their guide. A former Quill staffer, Sanders pointed out the historical significance of the Quill’s window display, which shows large-scale replicas of front pages from several newspapers and journals published in West Plains over the 184 years since the West Plains community was first settled by Josiah Howell.

In addition to Cobb and Bonham, teachers include Ashlea Adams, Kimberly Davis, Sadie Roberts, Amber Russell, Jennifer Scharnhorst and Jennifer Skeeters. more
