100 YEARS OF VAN NUYS HIGH SCHOOL - ROTC 1937

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Van Nuys High School was only 23 years old when Earl March was a student in the Reserve Officers Training Corps. He was a part of a plan put into place during the Civil War by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862, to get American colleges to produce officers for the Union Army. Federal monies would be provided to colleges and high schools from that time to this.
