Farrell High School — 1909
First Commencement Exercises

The Class of 1909 was the first class to hold its commencement exercises in the newly built Farrell High School located at the corner of Fruit Avenue and Haywood Street (Roemer Blvd).

The newly built high school opened on Dec 8, 1908 as South Sharon High School and was renamed Farrell High School in 1912.

In 1938 the building was converted into the Junior High School when the new Farrell Senior High School opened at 1600 Roemer Blvd.
