i. Thank you for your sup- port of our Labor Day Festival for PRSAA Park Pavilion project. I would like to take this opportu- nity to thank those who have already donated to the PRSAA. I would like to have Maple and Oak Trees donated, landscape work, parking drive and lot paved, a very nice Porch Reed Park sign on red east face of the building. We will cherish the pavilion and park for future gener- ations, and leave a legacy on the pages of Waverly's history. We need your help again by making a donation or pledge: we are almost there. A few more jobs re- main and need funding to see them to fruition. We humbly request your join- ing us in this effort. This year's Labor Day Festival event will add some rev- enue but falls short of our needs. A brief history of Porch- Reed School: in 1915, land was acquired by the city of Waverly for the Humphreys County Board of Education from W. B. Nolan. Five acres and 3 rods were selected on a hill the north side of Hwy 13. Beginning at a stake at Mr. John Walker's north- west comer now called Porch Reed Hill. It was purchased and has a edu- cational institution of the Humphrey County School System devoted exclu- sively to the education of Black Students in the days of segrega!ed public edu- cation. It was called the Waverly Colored School. Mr. Nesbitt and Mr. L'une PAGE 15 -THE NEWS-DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 from Clarksville were two of the first teachers re- corded as teaching at the Waverly Colored School in the 1930s. Mrs. Myrtle Reed started teaching at Porch-Reed in 1947. She taught the fourth thru the eighth grade, as well as being principal. Mrs. Mat- tie Barr Porch taught the first thru the third grade in 1947. April 1947, the bac- calaureate service for the eighth grade graduating class was held. This ser- vice was held the Sun- day afternoon prior to the graduation exercise, which was usually held the following Friday night. Mr. A. J. Hardy, principal of Hampton High School in Dickson, TN, was the guest speaker. During this occasion, Mrs. Myr- tle Reed and Mrs. Mat- tie Barr Porch also an- nounced their retirement, as teachers of the Waverly Colored Elementary School. They had taught school over thirty years. Mr. Hardy proposed that the school be named Porch-Reed in honor of these two outstanding teachers. The audience accepted the proposal and thus Waverly Colored El- ementary School became Porch- Reed School. May 22, 1963 the 8th grade of Porch-Reed pre- sented their final Class Night. The students re- gaily procession down the aisles to "God of our Fathers", The Invocation - Rev. H. D. Taylor, Greet- ing - Judy Reed, Class motto - Maudlene Cole- man, Class poem - Alma Phillips, Class flower - Brenda Spicer, Class col- ors - Veatrice Taylor, and Farewell - Pam Collier. Professor Owen Warford gave the address to stu- dents and parents. Ray G. Gardner Jr. planned the program for the class night exercise. The eighth Grade Class of 1963 was the final graduation exer- cise held at Porch Reed School. It marked a new era for civil rights and in- tegration in Humphreys County. While the county was planning for integration in its own way, a black family who moved into the county from West Tennessee sued in the U.S. District Court. The parents were seeking the right to send their children to Waverly Elementary school. Avon Wdliams of Nashville TN. represented them; Bill Peeler was the attorney for Humphreys County. Mr. Peeler reports that the suit resulted in Judge Miller's issuing an order that Humphreys County de.velops a plan for inte- gration. The final word was that all schools are open to those black fami- lies who want to send their children to Waverly white schools. Some black families grasped the choice of inte- gration, while other opted to leave their children at Porch-Reed. There are those who feel today that desecration left black stu- dents without role models that they could identify with and would give them a sense of ambition. At the Same tune, the facili- ties and conditions at the black schools were badly QUILTTRAIL -"Card Trick" is owned by Gary and Pam Davis, 4126 Hurricane Creek Road, McEwen.
