Photo contributed by Cheryl Siebrass, from the Carl and Christine (Andersen) Petersen collection. It isn't clear if those pictured were the graduating class or just those at the school during 1914-15. Each individual photo has a handwritten name in white ink near the bottom edge.

Thanks to Denise Wurner for taking the time to transcribe names from this photo and also for cross referencing those names with the 1915 Census records.
