[Superintendent Port Eckles]
The Reflector

Under the supervision of Mr. Port Eckles, Principal of Farrell High School, the Class of 1917 published the first volume of the Farrell Senior High School yearbook, The Reflector, which carried a blue and gold paper cover and sold for one dollar per copy.

The Class of 1917 appropriately dedicated the annual to Mr. L. R. Eckles, Superintendent of the South Sharon Public Schools (later renamed ‘ Farrell Public Schools’) from 1908 until his death in 1918, when the Board of Education named his son, Mr. Port Eckles, Superintendent of the Farrell Public Schools.
