The first public school teacher was Miss Hettie Irwin, although Mrs. S. Cordeal had conducted a private school prior to this time.

On January i, 1916, there were ninety-nine school buildings in
the county, with 178 rooms ; valuation, $63,258 ; the high school enrollment was
eighty-eight ; total enrollment, 2,060.
