ll Editorial Comment






The school, which is featured on the cover page of this issue, is located at
Indian Trail and Newburg Road, Buechel, Kentucky.

It is known as Newberg Elementary and Junior High School.

It was built not only to replace the old Newburg School, which had long since

been outdated, but also to provide an adequate Elementary and Junior High pro—
gram for the community, which it serves.

The school is a one floor plan building containing 13 general purpose class
rooms, a library, a visual—aids room, a general shop, an art room, a home econo—
mics suite, a mathematics and science room, a music room, administrative and
physical education offices, and a very spacious and massive auditorium—gymnasium.

The exterior walls are of concrete, glass, and concrete block.

Because of its modern physical features, and fine teaching facilities, this

building is a source of inspiration and pride to teachers, pupils, and the community
as a whole.

This is the first Junior High School which has been constructed by the Jefferson
County Board of Education.







The Board of Directors of the K.T.A. voted to give annually several citations
to outstanding Kentuckians for educational achievement. Therefore several awards
will be made at the 1954 convention. Among these are the following:

(1) Prof. A. E. Meyzeek, over forty years a principal in the Louisville Public
Schools, ex—president of the K.N.E.A., civic leader and at present a member of the
State Board of Education.

(2) Mr. Jesse Lawrence, a teacher for many years in the Louisville Public
Schools, and a member of the Kentucky General Assembly. In the latter capacity,
he sponsored a revision of the Day Law, the result of which permitted Negro youth
to go to the University of Louisville and other colleges in Kentucky, to which,
heretofore, they were denied admittance.

(3) Dr. Blyden Jackson, an English teacher in the Louisville Public Schools
for several years. Recently he received his Doctor of Philosophy Degree from the
University of Michigan. He is now on the faculty of Fisk University. This year he
is to be a guest speaker on several departmental programs of the K.T.A.

(4) Mrs. Jane Spaulding, a guest speaker of the 1954 convention program.
She is a native Kentuckian, a graduate of Fisk University, was selected by Pres.
Eisenhower to be assistant in the Department of Health and Welfare. She is now
in an administrative position in the War Claims Commission at Washington, D. C.

(5) Prof. H. R. Merry, for more than thirty years the principal of the Lincoln—
Grant School at Covington, Ky. He has served for many years as president of the
Northern District Association of the K.N.E.A. He has also served as president of
the Negro Division of the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
He will retire in another year.


Loyalty is constant, faithful and self—sacrificing devotion to an object, person
or cause. In the case of your profession, it might well be the Kentucky Teachers
Association. Annual enrollment in this organization will help express your loyalty.
The K.T.A. office is on the alert to receive the annual membership fee of $3.00
from each teacher. The voluntary membership of $4.00 is much needed to adequ—
ately finance our program.

The K.T.A. keeps you informed through its journals, keeps up interest in the
learning of our children by promoting the annual spelling contest, bringing speak—
ers of national reputation to help inspire and inform our teachers, promoting a
legislative program for teachers’ welfare, etc.

Be loyal! Support your organization! It supports you!
