  • Cannon School unveils time capsule from 1994

    Cannon School unveiled a chapter of school history with the opening of a time capsule that students and faculty had placed behind a cornerstone in 1994 — the year the school moved from 65 Union St. to the present campus on Poplar Tent Road.

    At that time, the school was still Cabarrus Academy.

    The time capsule contained an array of historical artifacts, including a letter from Headmaster Richard Snyder, a newspaper article about the campus groundbreaking, a copy of Cabarrus Academy Cougar News, a copy of the 1994 Flashback yearbook, a student-parent handbook, an annual report, and the thumbprints of every Cabarrus Academy student at the time.
