We were all put on preventative medicine after Ms Austin died. She was a great teacher and our class went to WLOE to make an album after many hours of practice in classroom learning songs.

My favorite "How Great Thou Art". Marvin Terry and Debbie O'Dell had solo parts.

Here's the cover of Anthony Holt's 2nd grade report card at Leaksville Township. The inside is confidential, but it looks like he made the grade (see handwriting at top)...

1964-65 Principal was Homer Vernon.  Teacher was Martha M. Carter.
