GNA CAMPUS- In an effort to strengthen the bond between Greater Nanticoke Area School District and the City of Nanticoke, Mr. Litch and Ms. Scibek have reached out to the Nanticoke Historical Society to set up a display case in the main hallway. Each month the case will have a different themed display involving the history of Nanticoke.

Mr. Litch and Ms. Scibek, after deciding on a theme, will reach out to Chet Zaremba of the Nanticoke Historical Society. Mr. Zaremba will then look into the Society’s archives, and if a sufficient amount of artifacts fitting the theme are present, he will send them to the school to be a part of that month’s display.

The theme for December was based on the history of football in Nanticoke, Newport and Harter High Schools. There were two letters displayed talking about a  Thanksgiving Football game, a football picture of the Nanticoke football team from 1950, and a few original pictures of football games and of the Nanticoke Field House that was built in 1936. There was also a large array of football programs.

The main item on display was the original Lincoln Stadium sign.
