MSU Home :: Button, Phebe
She was an experienced teacher and administrator when she accompanied her son Frank to Morehead to start the Christian Normal School. Looked upon as a frail, elderly widow, few thought she would succeed with such a hard life. The loss of her husband and young daughter had strengthened her to cope with whatever came her way. From sparse beginnings and with continual major problems, she moved forward and laid the framework which allowed those in the region to get an education. She described the school: “it will serve as an elementary school as well as a place to train teachers.”
