a. As early as May 1910, School Board Journal reported the University Place had approved $50,000 in bonds for a high school. Nearly two years later, American School Board Journal reported in March 1912 that the board of education of University Place, Nebraska was "contemplating erection of a school building." In May 1912, American Carpenter and Builder published a competition design for the University Place high school by Chicago architect G. W. Ashby, implying it would be built. Berlinghof & Davis also prepared a design for a University Place High School, presumably for the same competition.

Instead, in July the Journal reported that A. H. Dyer & Co. of Fremont "have plans for 2-story high school; $50,000" for University Place and in August noted "Bids have been received" for the school.[4,5] Once built, the school was named Jackson High School.
