-A A +A

MILLERSVILLE, Pa. — Gladys Mohler vividly remembers her first school.

When she set off for class in the fall of 1932, the Excelsior School was just over the fence from her parents’ farm in Manor Township.

Her dog would follow her to the little brick schoolhouse.

“The teacher would let her come in and lie down by my desk,” Mohler reminisces.

The one-room school let her hear the older students’ lessons, which helped Mohler learn enough to skip the second grade.
