FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Yearbooks, class photos and trophies. Those are just some of the keepsakes chronicling the last 79-years at Elmhurst High School. If you want a piece of that history, all you have to do is request it.

When schools close, administrators have to worry about more than just the building.

They have to figure out what happens to computers, desks, and memorabilia.

That's where you come in, if there's a special picture from your glory track star days, or that photo of you stealing the spotlight at the school play, just request it and you might receive it.

The number to call is (260) 467-2650.

FWCS will take your request, evaluate it, and see if they can
accommodate you.

Meanwhile, other items will end up at the Allen County Public Library, with the Historical Society or at Wayne High School.

"We are planning on opening sort of a mini museum, or possible calling it a Trojan room at Wayne (high school). So what we'll have there are some of the trophies, team pictures, things like that, that mean a lot to a lot of different people," said Fort Wayne Community Schools Spokeswoman Krista Stockman.

Most 9th through 11th grade Elmhurst students will attend Wayne High School this fall.

We've mentioned the places where memorabilia will end up... but, if there's something left over... what happens then?

Well that decision is not final, but officials are considering holding an Elmhurst garage sale, to make sure leftovers make their way into personal collections.
