Westfield High School came into existence in 1933 to meet the needs of mining and steelworking families who desired that their children would be prepared to have a better life than they did. The history of "the little white schoolhouse on Tin Mill Road" shows a motivated and determined group of African-American students who overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles to become successful in many areas far beyond what might have been expected. The students not only experienced the love and nurturing of their parents, there was a mutual bond of love and respect between the teachers and students. Excellence was encouraged and expected. This book chroncicles not only the history of Westfield High School and the events surrounding its founding and subsequent closing in 1971, it gives a view of student activities and campus life through the eyes of former students. Forty-seven years after the unexpected closing of the school a book is being written about Westfield. As of 2018, annual all-class reunions have been held since 1969. Established alumni chapters (six remaining out of a total of nine) currently meet regularly, participate in various projects, and plan and host the yearly reunions. These and other ongoing activities are helping to insure that Westfield High School will never be forgotten.
