This website has been a labor of love and has been my way of remembering all the happy years I had at Derby Elementary, Kearney Junior High, and Adams City High School  from 1950 through 1962.  I think fondly of my friends and the good times we had.  Even though I was shy and sometimes felt like I was on the outside looking in (who didn't), I look upon our school years as a time of magic and wonder.  I'm sure you do too.  This web site is dedicated to you and the years you spent in Union No. 1 - Adams City High School and the other Adams County School District #14 schools.

Now that our old school has closed to make way for the new high school, it is time to honor and preserve the proud heritage and the vast history, memories,   photographs, memorabilia and genealogy of Union No. 1 - Adams City High School for  our children, grandchildren, and generations to come.  

As a genealogist, I have assumed the  duty to document our history, gather the memories, and to assist in preserving the memorabilia of our school and the district.  I need your help.  If we don't do this right now, who will?  Time is of the essence! Please take a few moments to complete the "Share your memories" form and share your photographs.  

Consider the Commerce City Historical Society  as you clean your closets and attics.  LEND your school memorabilia and photographs.  

I am absolutely passionate about our school,  all our alumni, my class and all the other classes, this website, our individual web sites,  finding lost classmates, planning class reunions, assisting other classes, preserving our history and memorabilia, and most of all you and our friendship in the past, now, and  in the days to come.   Life is too short - Let's stay in touch!  After all, 
agles are Friends Forever!
