Saving and Documenting the History of Honey Grove, Texas


See the entire document HERE.  It is really interesting!

The fame of the Honey Grove Schools is wider than the state, and in many places visited the people have inquired earnestly how such a system of schools was built up.  My answer is that the people of Honey Grove know the value of good schools and have long since learned the important lesson that such schools can be had only by the exercise of their best judgment and by hearty co-operation.  Only such teachers as will cheerfully put forth their best efforts are retained in the School and when they have done this they are counted worthy of all honor by the Board and loyally supported.
