Historical Information
Earl Boyles was a beloved janitor at the former Powellhurst Elementary School for 19 years in the 1930s and 40s. On rainy days he would allow cold, wet students to dry by the furnace. When a new elementary school was built in 1956, it was named after him. As of 2000, it remains the only school in Oregon named for a classified employee. When the land adjacent to the school was acquired for a park, there was no question that the park would be named after Earl Boyles as well.
