Washington Elementary School Oglesby

School buildings, schoolteachers, and schoolbooks were most generously provided by the citizens. These furnished the basis for the future achievements of their children. In almost every profession and business one can find graduates from the Oglesby schools both public and parochial. Some of these fields of endeavor are medicine: doctors, nurses, and pharmacists; law: attorneys, judges, politicians, and law enforcement; and business: bankers, management, engineers, and entrepreneurs. There are musicians, artists, athletes, writers, mechanics, theater people, and many people in other vocations who can boast of being Oglesby graduates. The Oglesby school system takes a back seat to none, from its humble beginnings amid hardships and struggle, to today—100-plus years later.
