Publisher emeritus Sam Matthews has long been known around the Press newsroom as a walking encyclopedia of Tracy history. Now he gets to share a little more with the town he knows like the back of his hand.
The new main classroom building at Tracy High will bear a mural and a plaque describing the building's history — from its building in the early 20th century, to its many uses, to its eventual demolition and rebuilding.
Sam Matthews is the man who penned the words for that plaque.
A special place in history, indeed.
