BH: Beth Anderson signs, Evolution to Excellence, Saturday, July 13th at 3pm.

Evolution to Excellence: The first fifty years of the Bethlehem Central School District

The book chronicles the district’s founding and how it built an excellent reputation within a short span of time. With its roots in the mid-19th century Common School movement of education, a community recognizes the need for a comprehensive and more advanced education for its children. A high school program begins in 1926 and by the 1940s, the town of Bethlehem is a highly recommended place to settle because of its excellent school district. How did that happen? The answers lie within.


Beth Anderson, a longtime resident of NY’s Capital Region, is passionate about words, art, music, photography and much more. Beth spins stories as she did during a quarter of a century teaching high school English students. Her mystery-in-progress, The Quarry’s Child, draws on her love of swimming, lakes, art, and the quest for answers. Beth is one of the founding members of the Upper Hudson Valley Chapter of Sisters in Crime, a graduate of the FBI Citizens Academy, a survivor of a visit to an active aircraft carrier while it was at sea, and a published poet in Soundings, a literary journal.
