St. Andrews School alumni reunion

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A historic school will be closed after suffering damage from Hurricane Michael.

The St. Andrews school has been in operation for 169 years.

Saturday around 40 alumni gathered in the school's cafeteria to reminisce about their time as students.

"The first St. Andrews School was 1850, 10 years before Lincoln was president, and with those connections and those roots, 169 years continually serving children and education, I mean it is the heart of St. Andrews School and everybody loves it," said the St. Andrews School Resident Historian, Marsha Rockhill.

The school will now move into the Oakland Terrace school property, but school staff says they are working to raise funds to repair the original campus.
