Here is a bit of information that I think would go very nicely with Arizona’s 100th birthday.
Zona Cooper, class of 1930, graduated Yuma High School at the Yuma Territorial Prison. The Y.T.P. closed in 1909 and the remaining inmates were transferred to Florence. In 1910 the high school was located in the Y.T.P for a time.
Zona was the first baby to be born in the State of Arizona, 14 February 1912.
