Shenango-Penn Mold Company,
a foundry specializing in ingots and stools, was incorporated in 1927.
They are now dependent upon Sharon Steel and Republic from Youngstown
fir their iron supply. For these many years it has been this town’s
principal industry. Equally important, the William
P. Snyder family have always been interested in the problems of
the community and have stood ready to help in any way they were asked.
Their presence here these past 68 years has contributed greatly to the
prosperity of the community. It was fitting and proper then that the
Sharpsville Board of Education did in 1963 name our Middle School, the William
P. Snyder Junior High School.
