Brian Welsh remembers his name and those of classmates being etched in history at the former Tonganoxie Elementary School. Crews renovated the former stage in the north gymnasium and turned it into a music room for grades 4-6 before the start of the 1994-95 school year. Welsh, who graduated in 2001, was a sixth-grader in 1994-95. His music teacher at the time had sixth-graders — and only that year’s sixth-graders — sign a wall in the room, as Welsh recalled.
