April 7, 2019 A duplicate historical marker was placed at South High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the school where the 1943-1948 students initiated $375,000 in War Bond sales to buy, name and dedicate a B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber, in honor of their extraordinary accomplishment. Alumni from the school, that closed in 1968, still meet monthly. Arthur Blackport, the young 8th grade boy who initiated the school’s involvement in the “Buy a Bomber” Funding drive, is pictured here, 76-years later, here along with another South High School classmate. South High School in now the Gerald R. Ford Job Corp Center. President Ford is a 1931 graduate!
