Couple who met at Emerson Elementary remember the school fondly
In this video posted on YouTube by Billy Wade Saturday, a couple who met while attending Emerson Elementary talk about how they met and share their memories of the school.
Sadly, Emerson, a building with character, will be demolished soon. Of course, Joplin has shiny new buildings with 21st Century architecture in the place of buildings like Emerson and the old South Middle School where I taught.
