Walter E. Durbahn, a long time teacher in Highland Park began a vocational program in the 1920's, where the students actually built homes in the community. This was part of a national movement across the country. For this reason, the high school won first prize in the Better Homes in America national contest in 1931. Mr. Durbahn received an invitation to the White House for the Better Homes in America conference later that same year.
And a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered or voted!
