Photo by James Wilson QHS celebrates 100 years.,00 James Wilson Staff Writer jwilson@ For being 100 years old, Quincy High School sure had some youthful energy May 29. Students and staff celebrated the 100-year anniversary of the learning establishment at the end of the school day, discussing the school's history and legacy. Ethan Nyberg, Dane Lewis and Matt Beeson addressed their fellow students below China Rock, noting the value of the day. Nancy Gambell, head of the Centennial Committee, praised the students for their enthusiasm in celebrating the milestone year. "This class embraced the honor of being the 100th graduating class of Quincy High School," Gambell said of the soon-to-be graduates. The main attractions of the celebration were the dedication of a time capsule, scheduled for burial some time over summer, and of the Centennial Landscape. During the time capsule dedication ceremony, the capsule already contained several items, including an April 29 edition of the Feather River Bulletin autographed by publisher Mike Taborski, a 2015-16 Visitors Guide, the 2015 Quincy High yearbook and a copy of the new Centennial Book created by Brooke Potter as her senior project. Before graduation, each senior will place a small object and a note in the capsule. The time capsule itself was a senior project the brainchild of Nyberg. Nyberg, with the mentoring of Ray Segura, welded the time capsule together at Feldmeier Equipment Inc. in Fernley, Nevada. Nyberg will seal the capsule before burial, making it airtight and waterproof. Principal Sue Segura said it is still undecided how long the time capsule will remain buried, but she was leaning toward 30 years. She also noted that the location of the burial is still undecided. It was Lewis' turn to now unveil his senior project. Lewis worked throughout the year to create a landscaped area under China Rock. Students were already accustomed to the space, but had not yet seen the centerpiece: a large rock with raised-metal lettering and an outline of a Trojan. Afterthe dedication ceremony, students and staff sang "Happy Birthday" to the century-old school before walking out to the south lawn to enjoy some cupcakes. 888.3PLUMAS Queen Set
