Saints Peter and Paul School’s Library Distribution Day

students with robotsFor 116 years, Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School was a cherished institution in the Wellston community, providing education from grades 1 to 12. Established in 1908 by the Franciscan Sisters from Manitowoc, Wisconsin, it marked their first mission assignment outside the state. In 2003, after 95 years of service, the Sisters departed due to the aging Franciscan Order. Despite their absence, the school flourished until its closure in 2023, creating a void in the community. However, its legacy endures as it supports nearby schools bysharing resources such as books, electronics, and classroom materials. Recently, principals, teachers, librarians, afterschool program managers, and district technology support staff participated in a distribution day, acquiring materials to meet the needs of staff and students in their districts. This was a rewarding experience for all involved, knowing that the library resources will continue to benefit students for years to come. GVESC's Karen Boch, Emily Crabtree, and Laurel Marion collaborated with Rain Shamblin, Jackson Vinton Catholic Consortium Business Manager, who stated, “We are so pleased to donate our library to all the surrounding counties that Sts. Peter and Paul served over the last 100 years. Our past staff, principals and librarians put countless hours into making our school Library a welcoming and enriching environment. We thank you for helping us with our transition and are grateful to serve our communities.”
