Nazareth Centennial History Book

Story collection for the Nazareth Centennial History Book has ended.  Those who have purchased a package will receive it in September 2024.  


What’s your story?

As Nazareth celebrates 100 years of educating people who have an impact on their communities, we are gathering alumni stories across generations and life experiences for a unique historical archive and printed and digital book for purchase.

By sharing your memories (stories and photos), you’ll enable a more complete history of Nazareth and its people to be preserved for generations to come, as we launch Nazareth’s next century.

Our partner
We are partnering with Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI), which has expertise in this work. Their trained staff are excited to reach out and gather your stories. The company will help us assemble the stories into the Nazareth centennial history book.
