If Eastern is as good as it was in 1957-58, it is the best in the US. We did not have to have many other activities, we were there to learn! At that time we had an award winning basketball team. Our facility was first in Wrightsville with a tiny little library but we behaved very well so we did not even have to have a librarian. Mr. Zeigler was our Principle. He was kind but stern. We dreaded going to his office for a paddle. Not many did. All parents were involved, all of the time!
