The Alumni Association has affectionately dubbed the Parma Senior High bell tower “Bailey Bells” after Lee Bailey, 1929, longtime treasurer of the Association. The “Bailey Bell Service Award” is given out every two years to alumni that have given at least 10 years of service to the Alumni Association. The recipients’s name is engraved on a bronze plaque that hangs in the auditorium lobby below the bell tower. Each initiate is given a bell with his/her name and the year inducted on it.
Pictures from each class can be found in the “Bailey Bell” showcase near the main office.
