Miss Winston Arrives on Arbor Vitae


These paragraphs quietly heralding Miss Noma Dix Winston's first arrival on Lindsey hill appeared on the front page of the August 31, 1938, edition of the Adair County News in an article headlined "Lindsey Wilson to Open Sept. 12 / Good Enrollment Expected:"
School officials anticipate an enrollment approaching 150. The Rev. Mr. White, who in former years has carried a heavy teaching load in addition to his multitudinous administrative duties, has been relieved of all classes except those in Bible history. His place in the history department will be taken by Miss Noma Dix Winston, of Sturgis, Ky., who will also take the place of Miss Mitchell Clarke as French teacher.

Miss Winston graduated with an A. B. degree from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, with a major in history. She received her master's degree at the University of Chicago and has done post graduate work at the University of Kentucky.
