I attended high school in Nanticoke in the late 1940s and have fond memories of very good and devoted teachers. At that time, the town had close to 26000 residents and, while in economic decline, remained a viable community. I visited about 6 years ago and did some research on the community and schools. The place has deteriorated enormously and I take it that the schools have too. A good secondary education was then a passage out to very good colleges and universities and most graduates fled to make lives elsewhere. I hope that NHS continues to serve that function.
Still, I have pleasant memories of many Nanticokians and Honey Potians. Evenings in the park, the long walk home from Honey Pot, a lively Main Street and Market Street on Friday evenings. That was more than a lifetime ago.
