“If Mr. Carnahan can get his wheelbarrow around the Diamond, we'll have school.”



When Bud Carnahan was superintendent of the Ligonier Valley School District, students had a saying about how much snow it took to keep them out of class.
“If Mr. Carnahan can get his wheelbarrow around the Diamond, we'll have school,” said Irma Hutchinson, 72, of Ligonier, a former student who knew him for more than 50 years.
Milroy “Bud” Carnahan of Laughlintown died Thursday, Sept. 24, 2015, in Ligonier Gardens of cancer. He was 85.
Born March 5, 1930, in Latrobe, a son of the late Benjamin and Viola (Finley) Carnahan, he was a 1948 graduate of Latrobe High School and earned a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from the University of Pittsburgh.
Mr. Carnahan worked for the Ligonier Valley School District for 33 years as a teacher, home and school visitor, business manager and school superintendent. He served as superintendent for 20 years and retired in 1989.
