PHS receives historical memorabilia

PAHOKEE — Out of the small town of Pahokee, Florida, young minds have gone into the world to become part of our nation’s history, and Pahokee Principal Dwayne Dennard was honored to receive memorabilia of a Pahokee alumnus from the original 1937 graduating class. The memorabilia belonged to Dr. Adrian H. Daane. The artifacts were donated by his son, Patrick Daane, who now resides in Georgia. The donation was brought home to the place where Dr. Daane played on the high school football team from 1935 to ’37 when he graduated. A piece of history little known to many is that one of his many achievements during his professional life as a teacher, scholar, physicist and mentor was to have worked on the atom bomb. Pahokee Middle High School is honored to have on display in its front office showcase select pieces of history that belonged to Dr. Adrian H. Daane.
