Fowler-Vienna Local School District
On January 1, 1961, Vienna Township schools officially consolidated with neighboring Fowler Township to form the Fowler-Vienna Local School District. Members of the Board of Education, appointed by the County Board, were Maurice Clute, Rudy Schuller, Genie Ulp, and Dale Bartholomew. Gertrude Lewis was appointed Clerk, Ralph Scott, Assistant Clerk, W. M. Hammack, Executive Head, and Andrew Cvercko, Principal.
The consolidated district began to operate in September of 1961 with 1,227 pupils.
The Vienna Centralized School building was used as the high school for the newly formed district. Fowler's school building housed the junior high, grades 7 and 8. It became necessary to rent rooms at the Youngstown Air Base to house several of the elementary grades. Hendricks I and Hendricks II were the names of the barracks where students attended classes at the base, named after Colonel R. Hendricks.
The Board planned and built two elementary schools, one in each township. Vienna's elementary school, completed in 1965, was named for Beryl Baker, while Fowler's elementary school building was named for Daisy Currie, a longtime music teacher in that school system.
The 45th Annual Commencement ended an era in public high school history in Vienna. The Class of 1961, all 49 graduates, was the last to obtain diplomas with "Vienna High School" inscribed upon them. The baccalaureate occurred on Sunday, May 21, 1961 followed by the commencement exercises on Wednesday, May 24, 1961. Both events took place in the Vienna High School Memorial Auditorium.
In 1962 the high school was renamed Mathews High School, in memory of Ithel F. Mathews, a revered former teacher and beloved friend of many in the community. Mathews High School's First Annual Baccalaureate and Commencement celebrated the achievements of 56 graduates in the Class of 1962. W. M. Hammack served as Superintendent and Andrew Cvercko served as Principal and Music Director. The baccalaureate occurred on Sunday, May 20, 1962 followed by the commencement exercises on Wednesday, May 23, 1962. Both events took place in the Mathews High School Memorial Auditorium.
