Item description for Passing on the Faith: The Story of a Mennonite School by Donald B. Kraybill & Joanne Hess Siegrist...
Overview More than fifty years ago, in 1941, as World War II was gathering momentum as the consolidated public school movement was changing the educational complexion of the country, Mennonites of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, decided to open their own high school. Lancaster Mennonite High School has reflected the church's general move from farming to professionalism, from a highly concentrated authority to shared leadership, from church services as the focus of social life to a broad range of music and arts and sports events. A light social history, highlighted with numerous anecdotes and memories of many who studied and taught there.
