McKinley Elementary in Colton celebrates 60 years
By Cynthia Mendoza

      t was a celebration of educa-
      tion, community and history
      as McKinley Elementary
School in Colton held their annual
spring carnival but this year with
an added bonus - a celebration of
the school’s 60th anniversary.
  Parents, students, teachers, staff,
both past and present, elected offi-
cials and members of the commu-
nity as a whole came together on
Friday, May 11 for an afternoon of
fun and good memories.
  McKinley Elementary, named
after William McKinley, 25th
president of the United States, was
established in 1952.
  Throughout the years the school
has served several generations of
families with parents who were
born and raised in the community
receiving their elementary educa-
tion there and eventually their chil-
dren attend as well.                                                           IECN PHOTO COURTESY   DENISE BERVER
