The Joseph S. Neidig Elementary School was planned as a tribute, not as a memorial to Mr. Neidig for his arduous efforts in promoting good educational opportunities for the youth of the community. In the early stages of construction, no one could foresee that Mr. Neidig would not be privileged to participate in the completion of the building or direct the educational program to be carried on within it.
Mr. Neidig devoted many hours in the planning of this building in order that its physical features would provide the best in educational facilities. His devotion to duty will always be an inspiration to those who knew him well.
Mr. Neidig gave the best years of his life to the schools in this area. It is the desire of those who direct the educational activities of the children in this building to continue the work started by him and make available to them the best educational program possible.
The building is a memorial and a tribute to Joseph S. Neidig, who devoted his life to promote and improve education in our community. It is now for others to carry on the fine work which he began and to fulfill his dreams for further improvements.
