OPENS SESSION. [ in. [ . o - Hundred and Twenty Scholars i ,PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD Enrolled---A Most Succudu J OF SUPERVISORS. Term Predicted. On Monday morning at 9 o'clock session of 1923-'24 of the Wil- kinson County Agricultural High chool was held in the auditorium, where a large ncmber of patrons and iends had gathered. Mr. J. L. Denson, who is serving his first term as principal, called the gathering to '@rder and a Bible lesson was read by Rev. H. G. Hawkins, of the Meth- odist church, and prayer was offered by Rev. D. E. Holt, of the Episcopal . churcl Mr. D. C. Bramlette was then introduced and delivered the addeu of welcome, during the course ef which he spoke in highest term o f the prospects of the school for the :future, and reviewed the glorious past of this county in a manner such as only one who is fully conversant with its history could do. He men- ioned the great men of national :fame who had claimed Wilkinson county as their homes and referred to many bits of history of which our county has a right to feel proud. He . closed by a very complimentary ref- erence to lr. Denson and his faculty and wished and predicted a great future for the school. Mr. Denson then outlined the plans upon which he expected to conduct the school, and' among other thing..said: "We want your chil- dren to come to this school and do the right, thing and we will help them; but if they come here and do the wrong thing, they cannot stay." He said that he hoped that the school would live up to the past his- tory of the county and asked the co. operation of the people of the en- tire county. The pupils were then assigned to their classes and the school work taken up. The faculty for this year follows: L. Denson, principal, Mathemat- and Latin; R. E. Cox, Agricul- glare; C. S. Miller, Agriculture and Science; W. H. Wood, History, Civ- ics and Athletics; Miss Jessye Le- flops, English and Latin; Miss Vera Shaw, Home Economics; Miss Lil- Ban Peters, Music; Miss Orlean Thompson, Girls' Athletics; Mrs. A. E. Morgan, Matron. In the Wood- rills Graded School Mrs. H. B. Me. C-she,, Mrs. Laura Gildart and Miss Camille Dreyfus are, we are glad to xeport, retained for another session. and Miss Orlean Thompsma has been zdded for the seventh and eighth gradeg. The school opened with perhaps the largest enrollment in its history. There are now one hundred and twenty scholars in the high school and 51 boarders in the dormitories, and others steadily coming The pu- pils in the Woodville Graded SchooT have not as yet been tabulated, but the nmnber will give a total of over hree hundred in all. New life has been injected into this institution and everything has begun with what may be termed a running start. In addition to the thorough school work nd discipline, athletic departments ]ave been added and are being stressed.
