I had some of the best times of my life there in the 80's. I haven't seen most of the people I graduated with since graduation night and I've wondered about a lot of them through the years. If those old walls could talk, the stories they'd tell! IHS will live on in our hearts and memories. Always a CUB!!!

My time at IHS hold some of my fondest memories growing up. The Band of Gold and Friday night football games couldn't be beat. I moved out of state after graduation to work and lost touch with many classmates but I'll always be a CUB at heart.

I graduated in '80 too. I was lucky. My husband was able to go in before they tore it and got my locker, some of the glass bricks from upstairs, and several of the gym floorboards. I wouldn't trade them for anything.

Iaeger High School was the heart and soul of our community, it held us all together. Remember where you were when Hugo hit the area closed schoo,and canceled the football game? Or, When the blizzard of 90 closed eveything for the whole weekend. Or Sadly when Mr. Stanley died? I was at Iaeger High School. Thank you Iaeger High School for all of the great times and bad times.

I also am a graduate of Iaeger High School, class of 1991, and have such fond memories of Iaeger High with all my friends. Iaeger High had made such a significance in my life and I am sure that others who became a "Cub" can verify that. It is so sad that when I do go back home to visit family that I no longer am able to see the building standing there, but everything changes with time and I guess our old school is no exception. Thanks Iaeger High for all the memories and I will always remember the friends I made there. I feel so honored that I was part of the Cub family!

Ok to be fullest honest------ they needed to combined the 2 schools together because kids are dropping more and more each day.... and yeah i understand y they took it down but i think they should have at least kept the gym open some how for the community to use... let's also face the 2000"s years was nothing like the good old times like the 80"s and 90"s.... sports was great, and the band was awesome also..
