Our new Superintendent, M. C. Bevens, comes to us from Madill, after a four year stay there and six years at Wells. We are pleased to have Mr. Bevens and feel fortunate in securing him.
E. Oscar Henninger is our new principal. He is a graduate of Caddo High and of S. T. C. at Durant. He has spent last four years teaching Liberty School north of town where he attained great success.
Arthur Campbell, our new coach, is also sponsor for the Cat’s Paw. He is highly recommended as an instructor and coach. During his last years at Southeastern he was editor of The Southeastern and president of the Senior Class. He was a member of the Savage football team for four years, playing half back.
Mrs. Downs, home economics instructor this year, comes from Durant. Mrs. Downs is a graduate of S.T.C., is very competent and we know she’ll prove a big success here. We are proud to have her as a member of our faculty.
Mrs. M. C. Bevens is supervisor of the music department for ’31-’32., is a graduate of Galloway College at Searcy, Ark. We, the school, appreciate her faithfulness to carry out our aim.
