Home of the Jeffers Jets!
The first school in Adams Township was established in Atlantic Mine in 1871. However, records of faculty and students were not kept until 1884. It was in 1891 that the Adams Township School Board hired Fred A. Jeffers to be principal.
On August 25, 1894, Fred A. Jeffers and Cora Doolittle, his classmate from the Michigan Normal School in Ypsilanti, Michigan (now Eastern Michigan University) were married. They had graduated together in 1891. Fred became Superintendent and Cora Principal of the Adams Township School District (ATSD) in September 1894. They would serve in these capacities together for 55 years until the passing of Mrs. Jeffers on March 29, 1948, two days before her 78th birthday. READ MORE
