Taylor V. Cremeans, Superintendent
Many of you will recall the twenties and early thirties when it was almost impossible for any student who did not live near the school to obtain a hot lunch. Those were the days when a school lunch for most students consisted of cold bread and meats or perhaps no lunch at all. Thanks to our State Department of Education and Federal government that situation no longer exists. Today every Pocahontas County student may obtain at a very nominal cost, or free or reduced rates, if needed, an excellent prepared, tasty and balanced meal at the school he attends…
Our hats are off to our dedicated cooks who brave rain and snow to make certain every youngster in the county may have a hot lunch:
Durbin School – Mrs. Velma H. Sutton, Mrs. Kathleen B. Colaw and Mrs. Marie Nottingham (part-time).
Hillsboro – Mrs. Sally Scott, Mrs. Annie F. Rock, Mrs. Anita M. Rose, Clara Belle Simmons, substitute.
Green Bank Elementary
Mrs. Icie V. Murphy, Mrs. Evelyn G. Beverage, Mrs. Fairy H. Sheets, Mrs. Betty Gum.
Marlinton Elementary – Louise Barnisky, Mrs. Goldie Kellison, Mrs. Lottie McKenney, Mrs. Edith Triplett, Mrs. Grace Landis, Mrs. Naomi Miller, Mrs. Ruth Shannahan (part-time).
