"It's definitely bitter sweet sad to see it all go," said Ron Crockett, an Elmhurst Alum.

Ed Crowly-- "This is a sad situation really for any person who went to Elmhurst," said Ed Crowly, the former Elmhurst track & field coach. 


It wasn't easy for Ron and Tammie Crockett seeing their high school memories sold off--as the couples relationship started at Elmhurst.


"We dated 9 years and got married and the rest is history--high school sweethearts," said Crockett.


Everything from shop equipment to science beakers were auctioned off--But Former Track and field coach Ed Crowley came back to revisit the room he  called his office.

 

"Where we are standing now was the weight room and I've spent many hours helping kids get into condition for their respective sports," said Crowly. 

 

Anything that wasn't bolted down was for sale--allowing Rod Boze a chance to see his locker from sophomore year.


"My Homeroom was just right there around the corner and my locker was one of these," said Boze. 


Boze says he wasn't expecting to be so affected by coming back to his Alma Mater.


"It's nostalgic you know walking around and seeing rooms that I remember like the cafeteria and the choir room," said Boze. 


Along with the hundreds that turned out for the auction--bidders could also take some memories from the school via the internet.
