EMTHS Video Tour

A Video Tour of Manual with Characters!

As you know our 60th Class Reunion will not include a tour of Manual. So on March 28th during Spring Break our reunion planning group walked the halls and remembered many of our days at Manual. Unfortunately Norm Fuchs and Michael Glenn were not able to be there.


As you would expect the way Manual's building is being used today is nothing like it used to be. Christina Summer-Wooley, Head of Partnerships and Communications, provided these notes about how Manual's building is currently being used.
