It explains the current demands of today's society and the education level needed. This is played for our upper level students during meetings with REDI (Regional Economic Development Initiative) on parent nights and assemblies.

Peabody High School was founded in 1877 with money donated by George Peabody.
Mr. Peabody was an international merchant and financier. At the conclusion of the Civil War, he donated $3.4 million to establish the 'Peabody Education Fund' in order to rebuild schools in the south. The $3.4 million would be the equivalent of $75 million today.
In recognition of this act of philanthropy, Congress unanimously approved a resolution of gratitude and presented Peabody with a gold medal. Also, President Andrew Johnson personally visited Peabody and thanked him for his efforts.
"Although George Peabody was first and foremost an American
businessman, his philosophic ideals transcended the war. As such, he
was more concerned with helping people than with politics. This was
evident in the effort he put forth in the Peabody Education Fund."
-Mayor Michael Bonfanti
