GLADEWATER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas school celebrated a milestone birthday Friday.
Friday afternoon, Congressman Louie Gohmert presented a United States flag flown over the White House to Broadway Elementary School in Gladewater for its 75th birthday. Then, students buried a time capsule filled with all sorts of things, including one of the principal's own memorable items.
"There is even an old paddle that I used when I taught elementary school in Tyler, that I put in there that I actually used right here in Gladewater," laughed principal Darren Richardson. "I hope in 25 years when I'm 67-years-old. I [will] call come back to Gladewater and say, 'I remember putting that time capsule right there!'"
