Eccles significant in schoolhouse restoration

Having taught for 20-plus years in the present-day school at 150 Mile House, I found it gratifying to read the article about the Little Red Schoolhouse in the July 30 issue of the Tribune.

But, it was disappointing to see no mention of former principal Richard Eccles who initiated the restoration, along with community member Gary Marshall.

CBC Morning Radio interviewed Mr. Eccles on the topic a few weeks ago.
