Menlo High School folded into the newly-named Chattooga High School in 1961.  Here's a look at one of the last yearbooks from Menlo High.

mr. shigley
Robert N. Shigley was principal and wrote the following message:

"In school you have been given the tools with which to pursue knowledge.  With the use of these tools, you can open the doors to a score of new worlds.  For the person with the inquiring and logical mind, there are unlimited opportunities.  It is within your power as future leaders to make this world a still better place in which to live, but without learning you cannot hope to do so.  You hold the future in your hands.  Whether it be blackened from the blight of ignorance, or bright with the light of knowledge, is up to you."
