Memories Of Mr. Cumberledge - 54
01/14/04     Melvin D. Smith  (1963)      melvinsmit@msn.com
My first memory is his "board of education. It was the paddle with the holes in it. He never used it on me, but attempted to. I also remember his caring about his students and how they could cope with life. The books, maybe I remember some of it, life, I remember alot of his lessons and think of his students from Northside. The majority of us holicans from the bad side of town turned into respectable citizens. To this I thank him and will always remember him as one of the people in my life that cared.

Re: Memories Of Mr. Cumberledge
I was never exposed to Mr. Cumberledge
during my school years in Henry County -
but applaud what Melvin and Moir had to say.
I - however - take exception to Mr. Hill's
statement of "losing seldom" to Northside in
our many summertime games. To be honest,
Junior, who won and lost in those games de-
pends mostly on who is talking. But .... in
all honesty .... who won or lost will always
take second place to how much fun we had. My
"hat" will always be off to Mr. Moir Hill,
Jr. and Jimmy "Percy" Painter for the sport-
manship they showed. Both were fine ball-
players and great "all around folks".
