Oquawka (population 1,539) is situated on the banks of the Mississippi River in far western Henderson County.  Il. Route 164 is the main highway in town.  A larger town of note in the area is Monmouth which sits 16 miles east of Oquawka.  More information is being sought regarding the town's history. 
 
Gulfport (population 207) is located in the same area, upper-western Illinois.  The town is located right on the banks of the Mississippi River in west-central Henderson County.  U.S. Route 34 is the main roadway connecting Gulf Port to the rest of Illinios and Iowa. The At & St Railroad travels through town.  Orchard City Lake sits on the southeast side of town.  Gulf Port is located about 20 miles southwest of Monmouth.
 
Gladstone-Oquawka High School was established in the late 1940s to early 1950s.  Biggsville had a high school in place by the late 1800s.  Gulf Port's situation is in need of research regarding its educational system.  It was in the early 1960s that these four towns entered into a consolidation effort of the high schools of Biggsville and Gladsone-Oquawka High Schools. We believe the year was 1960 when this effort led to the creatin of the Union School District.
 
The high school for the Union District was located near BIggsville.  The building served these communities for about 45 years.  It was in 2005 that Biggsville Union High agreed to consolidate their educational efforts with its neighbor from the south, Stronghurst Southern High School.  The new District was named the West Central School District. 
 
Biggsville Union HS is the home to West Central High School.

                                                        Lyrics from Justin E. Parsons 
 
                                          It's a grand old school,
                                          It's a victorious school,
                                          And forever will it's colors wave.
 
                                          It's the emblem of the school we love,
                                          In the home of the free and the brave.
 
                                          Every heart beats true for the red, white, and blue,
                                          Where there's never a boast or brag.
                                          Should all aquaintance be forgot,
                                          When the old Union High is here!

                                          On you Yankees

Boys Golf
 
From the "where there's a will, there's a way" category of life:
 
Biggsville Union did not have a notable golf program per say, however one athlete represtented the school incredibly well in the sport.  Does the name Todd Hamilton ring a bell to any of you sports fans?  Todd Hamilton won the IHSA State Class A Individual Championship in consecutive years in 1981 and 1982, his junior and senior years.   Todd's career did not fade away there.  He went on to a career on the Professional Golf Association Tour, and was crowned Champion of the British Open in 2004!

MEMORIES
 
From Justin E. Parsons (Class of 2001):
 
"I was a student at Union High School from 1997-2001. I mainly remember the rivalry between Union and Southern. We always talked about how much we hated Southern, but we never really had a reason why. For most of us it was just passed down from our parents since that was how it's been for years.
I was a Senior when both Union and Southern school districts started talking about co-oping for sports. I was fairly on the fence, but leaned more towards no. Mainly due to the fact that I was afraid someone was going to be better than me in the Shot-Put in track.
It was later that we realized that there wasn't going to be a co-op in sports, but instead, a consolidation of both schools. We found out that it wouldn't happen until much later, after I graduated.
I will say, I do miss Union High School. It still doesn't seem right to not have a Union vs. Southern rivalry. I know I'm not the only one."
