Video: Waco High School 1910 – 2010

These videos were created by Edward Mitchell, a 1962 graduate of University High School.

My mother, Cora Mitchell,  taught in the Waco Independent School District from 1924 to 1970 and knew all our teachers: Muriel Eggbrecht, Lyle Skinner, Mattie Bess Coffield, Leta Spearman, Othella Denman, Marie Craven.  She taught at South Waco 1927-1942, South Jr. 1942-1952.  Then, she  got her library science degree and was Assistant Librarian at Bells Hill in 1953 and Librarian from 1954 to 1970 at Waco Tech/University High.

His parents bought their home and five acres in 1937 at what later was 2801 Bagby.  Sacred Heart Church was founded in ‘1957 right next door. His father died in 1958 and, in 1963, his mother sold their home and property to the church which exists there today, right across the street from what used to be University High. We were the last class to attend in the six old buildings.
