1976 Honorary Chapter Farmers

76 0303 02
March 3, 1976

At the FFA Banquet, Superintendent Bobby Driggers and Lunchroom Chief Mary Lou Davis were recognized as Honorary Chapter Farmers by Brantley Ricks and Chuck Ellington. When we were in high school "Ma" Davis would sneak a few peanut butter cookies out the back door. While performing newspaper duties at TES I would stop by the lunchroom, where she would have saved back a few cookies for me. They were huge. One of the reasons during the 1980s I got up to 192 pounds.

Others that week: 4-H Junior Rally, Garden Club Liberty Trees, Basketball, TPS program, band at PTA, Sharon Salter, Y clubs gave magazine covers to library.

I remember Miss Davis when I was in school. My grandfather, Edward Geiger, served on the BOE with Bobby Driggers, and they were good friends.
