She comes very highly recommended, and this selection is not only a mark of the good judgment of the associate principals, but insure the best of training for the large class of music pupils. In order to have everything in readiness to start her class Thursday, Miss Barker will arrive tonight.
The prospects for a large attendance this year are very encouraging indeed. The school has had a very satisfactory growth from the beginning and has already made an enviable reputation.

July 9,1918--We give three cheers and a whoopee for Southside. The county has bought the Southside auditorium and is going to establish one of the county high schools here, which will mean much for old Southside and comunity.

August 6,1918--The county High School began Monday August 5, here with Professor Delzell as principal, assisted by Mrs. Bessie Cooper and Misses Dickson and Swift. It is to be hoped the school will be a success, but it depends upon whether the people will pull or push.
The very fundamental principle of success lies within the parent co-operating with the teachers; unless that is had, the school will be a failure.

22   MARION


March 26,1932--Friday evening a large crowd gathered at Marion School for an inter-school contest between Marion and Sunnyside School. An old-fashioned spelling match sponsored by the school PTA and also a match by the primary rooms of the home schools, each taking part in chorus, storytelling, and humorous readings. Marion school also entered a dramatic reading.
In order that the storytellers for the home school might be eliminated and that the faculty be assisted by the visiting faculty, Misses Thelma Douglas and Agnes McCarroll, three stories were given. The stories were: “Little Girl Blue” by Martha Baggett and “Little Black Sambo” by Alvin Clark of Marion school. Sunnyside gave “The Red Cross Day” by Imogene Buckner. As humorous readings, Marion gave “Hanging A Picture” by William Bryant Hodge.
Marion students giving dramatic readings, “The House With Nobody In It” were Lewis Dickson and Matiline Edwards. Groups of eight children from each school sang three numbers.
Then the principal match took place. After several minutes of rapid and successful spelling, the little folks gave place to the community match. Mrs. Freeman Hodges and William Dickson chose the spellers with Mrs. Ben Castleberry, president of the PTA.
After about two hours of spelling, 6 of the 36 chosen were still standing and as the hour was becoming late, draws were taken for the prize. Mrs. Hodges being the winner and Miss Mildred Coleman won the consolation prize.

39   SOUTHSIDE


August 15,1931--Plans for a four-room addition to the Southside school building, on which work is to begin Monday and which it is hoped to be complete by October 15, were approved by the County Board of Education in regular session Friday in the office of Superintendent A. W. Jobe.
Under the provisions of the agreement with patrons, the Board will build three additional classrooms, and the citizens of the community will construct a combined auditorium and gymnasium adjoining the three new classrooms.
The building will then have ten classrooms, one of which will be the present auditorium. Four of the rooms will be used for high school work, and the remaining six for the elementary grades.
It is the only school in the county outside of Clarksville giving four years of high school work. Last year there was an overflow attendance in both the high school and elementary departments, the peak reaching 225, of which sixty were high school students.
The size of the faculty has not been increased and the same personnel who served last year will be in charge during the coming term.
The high school faculty is composed of

Principal
John Matthews

Vocational Agriculture
T. G. Hinton

Latin and Science
Miss Marie Riggins

Home Economics
Miss Jessie Basford

    The elementary department faculty is again composed of

59   SUNNYSIDE SCHOOL


November 15,1958--Sunnyside School began with a one-room building, located on the road leading to Mt. Zion Church, near the present home of H.B. Swift, in the year of 1899. As attendance increased, it became so crowded in the one room that another room was built.
Among the many teachers who taught there were:
C.B. Plummer
Bill Fain
Jim McCurdy
Sam Roberts
Albert Curd
Nell Swift
Esther Plummer
Stelia Rogers
Mary Swift
Dudley Tanner
Dan Corlew
Jeff Dotson
Winnie Swift
Date Jobe
Ina Harris
Bertie Stack
Irene Hamilton
Keener Dickson
Maggie Harris
Effie Swift
Lillian Swift
In the year of 1935 the building was destroyed by fire. Classes were held in Mt. Zion Church while a new building was being constructed. Since there was talk of schools being consolidated, it was decided the location of the school would be moved to the new Highway 48. When the nice two room building was completed, it was given the name of Grandview.
In the year of 1945, due to an oil stove explosion while Mrs. W.C. Batson was preparing to cook school lunches, the new school was burned. Fortunately the teacher, Mrs. Lurline Smith, called for a fire drill and the students, thinking it was only for practice, were out of the building before they knew of the fire.
Again classes were moved to the church and a new building was started at the same location.
Three new rooms have been added to this building and Grange Hall, Walnut Grove, and Marion Schools have been consolidated with it.
There are 150 students enrolled and teachers are:
Mrs. Lurline Smith
Mrs. Banks Batson
Mrs. Freeman Hodges
Mrs. Paul Plummer
Mrs. Mellow Porter and Mrs. William Dickson are in charge of the cafeteria.
The school has an active PTA with members from Grange Hall, Ryes Chapel, and Marion joining with Grandview patrons to have an outstanding Association.

69   SAILOR’S REST


March 6,1918--Friday night, March 1, will never be forgotten at Sailor’s Rest for two things at least. The school at Center Point was filled to overflowing by both local visitors and those from Union School. The interesting occurrence of this meeting was a joint debate between our school and that of Union. The question was of interest to all for it was on “Military Training”. The question had been delivered sometime before and everyone had ample preparation. The affirmative was supported by Misses Lizzie Shannon and Erleane Harris of Center Point, while Union was represented on the negative by Misses Ruth Broome and Pauline McCauley.
There were several other members involved leading up to the grand climax, the debate, among them being a song by Little Miss Rebecca Vaughn and a reading by Miss Williamson.
Miss Shannon led with an interesting discussion. She took up the phase of military training as related to the individual. Her colleague followed with a concise discourse, proving the benefit of the military to the nation. Then Misses Broome and McCauley attacked their opponents with vigor and won the day, the latter soaring to heights of eloquence. But just to show how hard we die, a challenge is now on the way asking for another contest which we are looking forward to.
The second feature of the night was a box supper. The girls from Union brought boxes and there was lively bidding between the boys from the two communities; the net amount taken being abut $30. Perhaps the boys gave their money more freely because half was going to the Red Cross and they stand a chance of meeting their dollars “somewhere in France before old Kaiser Bill says enough”.

December 15,1928--Quite a bit of attractiveness has been added to the Southside school building by the erection of a flagpole and a five by eight foot American flag, the gift of Miss Bertha B. Powell, primary teacher in the institution. The flag is located atop the building near the center of the front edge. The pole was cut, hewn, and put up by the boys doing shop work in vocational agriculture.

Jan.6,1910--The public school building at Shiloh was completed yesterday and the last term of the present session began this morning in the new building. The old house was condemned as being unsafe, as it was an extensively tall structure and being badly constructed upon a high hill was very dangerous. The present building is one story high built in an “L” shape.
This is indeed one of the most important and successful rural schools in Montgomery County. Professor A.W. Jobe is principal and Miss Isabella Williams assistant. Besides the regular pupils, there are also boarding scholars.
