Schrunk Township was first listed as a school township during the 1910 Census, with a population of 120. It was named after brothers Charlie and George Schrunk, early settlers from Iowa who moved to the area in 1893. The first school was built in 1903. A second schoolhouse was constructed in 1908, and operated until 1957 when the school district was consolidated with nearby Wing.
