Inscription.  Gone but not Forgotten
The Golden Years

Home of the Bears

This memorial to Ravinia Consolidated School is a tribute to all who attended and graduated from the humble institution, including dedicated educators and board members who provided the force to make the school a rewarding, meaningful place for learning. During its fifty year (1917-1967) history, 553 students graduated from its hallowed halls. The brick, stone and bell that form this memorial are derived from the original school structure and serve as vivid reminders of the great memories and good times we hold dear. The education received helped form lives and establish goals that enabled many to achieve great things.

The early leaders who envisioned the Ravinia Consolidated School concept made it possible for all to benefit.

Constructed and set in stone in the year 2004.
