Press of Carter's Weekly, North Wilkesboro, N. C. 



TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION : 

Gentlemen: I herewith respectfully submit to you my 
annual report of the public schools of Wilkes County for 
the scholastic year ending June 30, 1921. 

I desire to congratulate you upon the success of the work 
during the past year. When we consider the many epidem- 
ics prevalent in various parts of the county during the 
past winter, the results are exceedingly gratifying. 

I wish to call your attention to the table showing the 
progress of public education in our county since the year 
of 1900. It is indeed an encouraging story of progress and 
should be an incentive to our people to attempt still greater 
things in the years to come. 

With best wishes for the continued success of the work in 
our county, I am, 

Most sincerely yours, 

C. C. WRIGHT, 
County Superintendent of Schools. 

Hunting Creek, N. C, June 30, 1921. 



TO THE PEOPLE OF WILKES COUNTY: 

Feeling that it is a duty we owe to the public to give an 
account of the progress of public education in the county 
each year, and believing that the patrons of the public 
schools, the school officers and the friends of education will 
be pleased to receive this information, and that a better 
knowledge of what our schools are doing will tend to create 
more interest in them, we gladly present to you this our 
twenty-second annual report, trusting that the work done 
and the results achieved merit and may receive your ap- 
proval. 

Very truly yours, 

C. C. WRIGHT, 
County Superintendent of Schools.. 

Hunting Creek, N. C, June 30, 1921.

TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. 

The meetings of the Teachers' Association have been 
well attended during the past year. Practically all of the 
teachers of the county are members of this body and take 
an active part in the work. These meetings have played 
no little part in the progress which our county has made 
along educational lines in the past decade. They have en- 
abled the teachers to meet and know each other. They 
have given them higher ideals, greater inspiration, and 
more love for the work in which they are engaged. The 
colored teachers have an association which meets regularly 
and which has done great good for the schools of that race. 
Two hundred and eighty teachers were enrolled in the 
Teachers' Association during the year. 

PERFECT SPELLERS. 

Feeling that the subject of spelling was being neglected 
in some of our schools, and realizing its importance, and hop- 
ing to arouse greater interest in this matter our Board of 
Education decided to give an award of honor to each pupil 
in the public schools of the county who was perfect in spell- 
ing for the entire term. This experiment has already dem- 
onstrated its worth and is to become a permanent feature 
of the educational work of the county. The names of those 
who received these awards of honor appear elsewhere in 
this report, a list 239 strong. 

CERTIFICATES OF MERIT. 

The awards of certificates of merit to all who were 
perfect in attendance during the past year has played no 
little part in the increased enrollment and attendance here. 
There were 698 children to receive these certificates of 
merit, and they came to get them from one end of the county 
to the other. This is but one instance of many that might 
be cited to show the ever increasing interest on the part of 
our people in all things that pertain to the education of their 
children. It shows unmistakably that they are determined 
to give their children a better chance in the race of life than 
was allotted to them. This has become a permanent feature 
in the work of the County. The names of those who re- 
ceived these certificates of merit for perfect attendance dur- 
ing the year appear elsewhere in this report.

THE BETTER BREAD CONTEST. 

In casting- about for means to improve existing condi- 
tions in the schools from year to year we decided this term 
to hold a better bread contest in the schools throughout the 
county. Accordingly just before the close of the term a 
day was fixed in each school where a preliminary contest 
was held for the purpose of selecting three representatives 
from the school to take part in the township contest which 
was scheduled to occur one week later. At this contest 
three representatives were selceted to take part in the group 
contest to be held at the county commencement in the vari- 
ous divisions of the county. These contests were held in 
bread baking, biscuit baking, and cake baking. One mer- 
chant was selected in each township to give a bag of flour to 
the winner. Quite a number of baking powder companies, 
manufacturers of flour, cake ingredients, etc., etc., were 
asked to donate some of their wares to this purpose, and the 
response was most liberal indeed. Over five hundred girls 
and women entered the contests and each contestant re- 
ceived something in recognition of her efforts if nothing but 
a cook book. A great many of these were donated by var- 
ious companies throughout the country. At the group 
commencements several valuable prizes were given by the 
merchants of the towns. All in all this was one of the most 
interesting and valuable features of the many entering into 
the activities of the day. No doubt the lessons learned in 
these contests will bear much fruit out yonder in the lives of 
these girls and young women. 



(44) 



THE WORK OF THE YEAR. 

The year just closing- has been a very successful one. 
The enrollment and attendance have really been phenomenal 
when we consider the percentage enrolled and in 
attendance in the county as a whole. In the 
increase in the valuation of school property which has been 
more than $24,000 during- the year, in the number of paint- 
ed school houses, the erection of new buildings and addi- 
tions to old ones, and in many activities the progress has 
been truly gratifying. 

During the year we have increased the number of our 
supplementary libraries to 280 and the number of second 
original libraries to 32. Each district has an original li- 
brary. 

Our County high schools at Wilkesboro, Rcnda and 
Traphill, have a course of study covering two years while 
the school at Wilkesboro covers a period of four years, pre- 
paring the students for college. 

There are two other schools in the county which pre- 
pare students for college : North Wilkesboro and Mountain 
View Institute. At the latter of these two places two ex- 
cellent dormitories are in operation, one for the boys and 
one for the girls. Board here is given on the co-operative 
plan or at actual cost. 

By means of circular letters, correspondence, the local 
press, the telephone, through visits and personal interviews, 
1 have endeavored to keep in close touch with the work this 
year. 

An interesting feature of the commencement exercises 
was the award of gold medals to 35 children who had at- 
tended school every day for seven years. Three others had 
been perfect in attendance for eleven years. 

A colored commencement was held at Wilkesboro in 
April and was largely attended by the colored people from 
all sections of the county. Four diplomas of graduation 
were issued, 74 certificates of merit were given for perfect 

(45) 



attendance, two gold medals for seven years perfect atten- 
dance, 47 awards of honor were presented for perfect spell- 
ing for the term and 5 library certificates were given. 

The library certificate plan was continued this year. 
To every pupil in the public schools of the county who had 
read no less than fifty books from the library during the 
calendar year was awarded a library certificate. Forty- 
seven certificates were given this year. This also becomes 
a permanent feature of the educational work of the county 
and has done much to interest the children :n good reading. 

A very intersting feature of the work this year was a 
recitation-declamation contest. Preliminary contests were 
held in the various schools for the puipose of selecting two 
pupils to represent the district in the township contest. 
These township contests were held on Friday afternoon, 
March 25, when two pupils were chosen both in spelling and 
in reciting* and declaiming to represent the township at the 
group commencements. The winners in the commencement 
contests had the distinction of being the successful ones in 
three successive contests. 

Hundreds of debates, spelling matches, entertainments 
and parents' meetings were held during the year. 

The county, as in the past, was devided into four sec- 
tions for the County Commencements in each of which a 
very successful meeting was held. Contests for reciting, 
declaiming, bread, biscuit and cake baking were held and 
prizes were awarded to the winners. For the names of the 
common school graduates who received diplomas at the 
group commencements, those who received awards of honor 
for perfect spelling, certificates of merit for perfect atten- 
dance, library certificates, etc., etc., see elsewhere in this 
report. 

The Honor Roll for the teachers and the Standard of 
Excellence for schools which have again been in operation 
this year has each been productive of most excellent results, 
stimulating the work in many ways. 

Comparative charts showing progress in education and 

(4G) 



the conditions in each township along educational lines were 
placed upon the walls of the office of the Board of Education 
and exhibited at the meetings of the Teachers' Association. 
An outline map of the county was also displayed in the same 
manner, showing by various colors the percentage of enroll- 
ment in each township. Two townships, those of Brushy 
Mountain and Walnut Grove, each enrolled' one hundred per 
cent, of its school census. This is the first instance of its 
kind in the history of the work here. 

We again adopted the method introduced' in the school 
last year of giving certificates for perfect monthly atten- 
dance. This, for obvious reasons, has helped the daily av- 
erage in many schools. Hundred's of these certificates were 
given out to the boys and girls in the schools. 

A sketch of the work of the year would not be complete 
without a reference to the splendid work of the teachers 
in a course of professional study outlined and suggested by 
the State Department of Education. After the three coun- 
ty-wide meetings of the Teachers' Association last fall the 
county was divided into four groups with a group center 
designated in each where the teachers met monthly and 
studied and discussed the professional course. 

At the final examination in April quite a number of the 
teachers successfully passed the tests and the State Board 
of Examiners gave them credit for the renewal of their cer- 
tificates. This feature of the work will be continued during 
the coming year. One hundred and sixty-eight teachers 
were enrolled in this professional study course. 

During the year a summer school of seven weeks du- 
ration was held at Mountain View where approximately one 
hundred and fifty teachers attended in whole or in part and 
took the work prescribed by the State Board of Education. 
Many of these were enabled to raise their certificates to 
those of a higher grade, thus securing better salaries. All 
of them have been benefitted and through them the schools 
will also be helped. A summer school of six weeks duration 
was held at Wilkesboro for the teachers of the colored race 

(47) 



where about sixty teachers were enrolled. The school has 
helped the colored teachers very greatly. 

A number of Community Fairs were held in the 
County where several educational exhibits were made and 
for which prizes had been secured. 

During 1 the year an educational survey was taken of 
the County which, shows some very interesting facts as to 
the educational and agricultural condition of the country. A 
synopsis of this survey appears elsewhere in this edition. 

In conclusion I wish to express my grateful apprecia-
