My name is Mary Lee (Taylor) Worthington. I attended Ellen Myers in the old building from 1943 through the 8th grade. I lived at Grace Nettleton Home for Girls. My first teacher was Bessie Anderson. Other teachers I remember are, Miss Nora Ellison, Miss Day, Virginia Sharp and Mr. Clarence Jordan. I played basketball when I was in the 8th grade. Mr. Jordan was the coach. We had wonderful teachers. They were dedicated to "teaching" us and respected us as individuals. Those years spent at Ellen Myers were happy times. I am looking for any girls that attended when I was there and also girls from Grace Nettleton. They can email me at mlw35@yahoo.com. I never attended the new school but I'm sure the teachers are as dedicated as the ones that taught me. I would recommend Ellen Myers to any parent looking for a good learning institution for their children. I give your school 3 thumbs up!

I went to this school when it was first built. I went to the old Ellen Myers School first. Miss Ellison and Miss Day and Miss Sharp was some of my teachers. Can not remember the others.I lived at Grace Nettleton Home for Girls, my sister Joyce and I (Johnnie Fee). If you are out there at this time (1946 through 1955 please contact me.) jlynncatlett@suddenlink.net Hazel and Edith Bennett, jane Mullins, Dorothy cathy and Judy Love and many more girls. This was a grand school, learned a lot there. Lots of paddlings though. Keep the school going.
