Pictured is the Sand Lake High School built in 1923. Former students recall several fond
memories. One of them is the fire escape where students from the second floor slid through a
large tube to the ground level. The tube exit is shown at the bottom left in the picture.

Tri County Area Schools was formed when Howard City High
School and Sand Lake High School merged together in 1962. Many
people have only known Sand Lake as having an elementary, because,
since 1965, the school building was used for just that. But there’s more
to our town than an elementary. As history shows us, Sand Lake had
a large brick high school that housed grades kindergarten through
twelfth grade. Below are the details of this history.
In 1907, a new four-room school was built in the center of the town
of Sand Lake. This was the first school known as the Sand Lake High
School (it held 13 grades).
In 1923, Sand Lake erected a two-story brick school building that
housed 12 classrooms. This building was located just west or possibly
on the present west side of Sand Lake Elementary. By the mid 1950’s Back row (l to r): Coach Kim Inman, Tiffany Dillon, Allie Cook, Tranny Devereoux,
Kayla Vos, Audree Lalonde, Hailey Small, Caitlin Marek, and Coach Katie Inman.
the building was overcrowded and some classes were held in several Middle row (l to r): Kaylee Hackbardt, Lauren Hinton, Machaila Hawley, Alyssa
buildings downtown such as the V.F.W. Hall and the Auditorium (next Griffin, Alyssa Miller, and Maria Lagunas. Front row (l to r): Marissa McIntosh and
to Lakeside Inn). Danielle Pellerin. Absent from picture: Chealsea Hawkins.
In 1936, the first school bus was purchased and Dee Sawrey was the
first driver.
In 1957, a new elementary building was built east of the 1923 two-
story school building. The new building had four rooms and a boiler
room. This building is now part of the present elementary building
(current fourth-grade classrooms).
In 1962 the last class graduated from “Sand Lake High School.”
There were 13 graduates.
In the fall of 1962, Sand Lake School students in grades 9th through
12th merged with Howard City High School students at the Edgerton
building in Howard City. The 7th and 8th grade students from Howard
City School joined the 7th and 8th grade students at the Sand Lake
High School.
In 1964, an addition was added to Sand Lake Elementary. It included
an all purpose room (the present gymnasium), kitchenette, and two
class rooms at the east end of the existing elementary.
In February of 1965, grades 9-12 moved into the new high school
on Kendaville Road. The board of education made the decision to close
Sand Lake High School (built in 1923) and the Pierson School. They
designated the old Howard City High School (Edgerton Building) as
the Tri County Middle School housing grades 5-8th and Pierson’s 4th
grade.
In October 1966, the two-story building (pictured) known as Sand
Lake High School, was torn down.
In 1967, Sand Lake Elementary had an addition of five classrooms,

Wound Healing Program Now Available


at Spectrum Health United Hospital
GREENVILLE, MI., May 3, 2010 – Specialized care for chronic wounds is now
available at Spectrum Health United Hospital. The Wound Healing Program treats a
variety of wounds including ulcers resulting from poor blood flow in the arteries or
veins, diabetic foot and leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, wounds caused by radiation treat-
ments, and post-surgical wounds.
It is estimated that more than two million Americans have wounds that fail to heal for a
variety of reasons, such as circulatory problems, diabetes, arthritis, kidney disease, age,
diet and smoking. Without proper treatment, these wounds may become infected or in
some cases even require amputation if not treated quickly and effectively.
The Wound Healing Program at United Hospital is closely affiliated with the full-time
Wound Healing Program at Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids and is committed to pro-
viding wound care services locally. The wound care team coordinates care with other
members of the medical community, including primary care physicians. Unique among
wound treatment programs in West Michigan, the team-oriented approach may combine
expertise of vascular surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, dermatologists, plastic surgeons,
podiatrists, infectious disease physicians, and orthotic and prosthetic specialists.
“We recognized wound care as being a much-needed service in our area,” said Adam
Post, RN, director of the United Hospital Wound Healing Program. “For the comfort
and convenience of our patients, we can now offer wound care every week in Green-
ville through providers that have access to full-time wound therapy experts in Grand
Rapids.”
The Wound Healing Program is overseen by Richard Hodgson, MD. He is a graduate of
University of Missouri-Columbia School of Medicine. He is board certifi ed in internal
medicine, as well as undersea and hyperbaric medicine. Dr. Hodgson is a trained diving
medical officer and a certified diving medical examiner.
“Wound care provides a wide variety of effective treatment options for patients not
responding well to traditional therapies,” said Dr. Hodgson. “I have been specializing in
wound care for more than 12 years and the feedback from both patients and physicians
has been extremely positive.”
Providing this specialized service locally has been a goal of Spectrum Health United
Hospital administrators for a number of years. “This is truly a unique opportunity to
bring this level of expertise to our hospital on a consistent basis,” said Brian Brasser,
chief nursing officer for United Hospital.
Dr. Hodgson concurred, saying “our team recognized the difficulty often associated
with travel, especially for individuals with chronic wounds. By partnering with United
Hospital, we can ease that burden considerably.”
For more information regarding the Wound Healing Program or to make an appoint-
ment, call 616-225-6990.
Spectrum Health is a not-for-profit health system in West Michigan that offers a full
continuum of care through the Spectrum Health Hospital Group, a collection of seven
hospitals and more than 140 service sites; the Spectrum Health Medical Group, mmpc®
and West Michigan Heart—physician groups totaling more than 400 providers; and
Priority Health, a health plan with nearly 580,000 members. Spectrum Health’s 16,000
employees, 1,500 medical staff members and 2,000 volunteers are committed to deliv-
ering the highest quality care. The organization provided $79.4 million in community
benefit during its 2009 fiscal year. As a system, Spectrum Health has earned more than
100 awards since it was formed in 1997.

Lately, however, we have become aware of some research that shows that these orbs may
