"The most influential of all educational factors is the conversation in a child's home.     -William Temple      "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."     -   Martin Luther King, Jr.         "Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."    - George Washington Carver     "The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one."    -  Malcolm Forbes   “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”     ― Nelson Mandela     “Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.”  ― Robert Frost     “Only a generation of readers will spawn a generation of writers.”    ― Steven Spielberg     “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”  ― Aristotle

Van Nuys Junior High Gets a Radio Station! - Back In 1954 (click here)

Once in a while, we dig up a little history on Van Nuys Middle School, formerly known as Van Nuys Junior High.

This comes from Jim Leighty, a student from the 1950's.

"In 1954, the Van Nuys Junior High Amateur Radio Club applied for and received a "club station" license, with Henry Quinly as trustee. We were now K6DQD - "Doctor Quinley's Demons". The school bought us quite a nice station. And, we were front page news in the San Fernando Valley News and Green Sheet (now the Los Angeles Daily News). I'm in the picture with some good folks including Mark Weiss (K6PBI - now K6FG), Jim Forgette, Dean Cohen (WA6KYC), , Iran Ausley (K6BMD), Richard Steinmetz, Steven Bensussan, Steven (the woodshop teacher's son) and our leader Henry Quinley (W6ZFW)."

Dr. Henry Quinley became a principal in the Los Angeles Unified School District later on in his career.
