Sevastopol Schools time capsule revives 1982 memories

Construction crews working on the Sevastopol School expansion project unearthed what appeared to be a plastic ice cream bucket. In fact, it's a time capsule buried by retired teacher Mike Madden and students in 1982.  The pail's lid was sealed only with electrician's tape, which proved to be ineffective in protecting newspaper articles, photographs, and film negatives.  While time may have taken a toll on some of the capsule artifacts,  Sevastopol alumnus Holly Kohls says they've regenerated nearly 40 years of almost forgotten memories.




The 1982 time capsule is one of about a dozen that Madden students have buried over his teaching career.  The unearthed time capsule is giving him a renewed perspective.




That leaves only about a dozen more Sevastopol School time capsules and their memories to be rediscovered.
