  1. Mrs. Ferguson was my first grade teacher at Oak Summit Elementary ten years after this photo was taken (74′-75′). She died five years later. They changed the name of the school to hers shortly after that. At Christmas time she was going to thrill us with a visit from Rudolph. She had someone bring a mounted deer head and just stick it in the doorway so we would think it was a live deer. We all went screaming and crying to the farthest corner of the classroom. Obviously not the intended result. I remember she read to us from the Bible every day. (Mrs. Ludolf in 3rd grade did this too.) Good memories.

  2. I doubt if any of us forget our first grade teacher and Mary Ferguson was mine at Oak Summit Elementary. Mary would have been a young teacher at that time, but I remember her dedication to her students. That was a time when faith was still welcomed in public education and Mary evidenced hers. I visited her classroom on the day of my graduation from high school and recall her apparent joy in having a former student visit.

  3. She was my second grade teacher, I started Oak Summit in 1970

  4. She was my first grade teacher in 1949-50. It was her first year of teaching.
