The History of John McEachern High School

Bell Tower1975 - Present
Bell Tower

   As a tribute to the McEachern family and their generosity, the Bell Tower was built on the site of the first structure on campus, more recently known as the old high school building. The forty-foot brick and steel tower encloses four bronze forged bells that ring every half-hour. The name of a Trustee is engraved on each bell in recognition of his service to the school and community.

1964 - Present Russell Hall as it Looks Today

   At this time, Russell Hall acquired a new fašade featuring four thirty-foot white columns and an expanded portico. Rescued from demolition by Principal Ralph Williams, the interior was gutted and reconstructed; the building then became the focal point of the campus. It houses the Office of the Principal, the Board Room, and a school museum. The second floor houses the Guidance Department.

   Another highlight of this period was the opening of Dobbs Hall. Named in honor of Lula Dobbs McEachern, wife of John McEachern, Sr., Dobbs Hall includes a state-of-the-art media center and an up-to-date science facility. Fully equipped to handle the information age and move students into the curricula of the future, the media center's facilities include an in-house television station and the latest research tools. Complementing the lower level media center is the upper level science floor that offers increased laboratory space and the latest equipment and resources to help students explore all areas of the science discipline.
