Macedonia Elementary School students, families, alumni and staff gathered Saturday to celebrate 100 years of teaching and learning at the school in east Cherokee County. 

Past Principal Jack Weaver was the guest speaker and discussed the history of the school. Alumni and former staff members reunited with old classmates and teachers and reviewed memorabilia from the school.

Ruby Milford, 104, the oldest living student who walked the school's halls, was among the attendees Saturday. Guests had a chance to watch interviews with her and Faye Blackwell, 86, the school's second-oldest living teacher. Students in the school's chorus performed Macedonia's alma mater, written for the centennial.
