Inscription.  Addie E. McFarland, an early black educator in Mineola, first opened a kindergarten program in her home before being asked to teach first and second grade at the public school. Miss Addie taught full time until 1944 when she became ill. After her illness, she continued to teach part-time when her health permitted. On December 8, 1952 the Board of Education of Mineola ISD voted to name the negro schools the Addie E. McFarland Elementary School and the Addie E. Mcfarland High School. Miss McFarland's contributions to the education of the youth of Mineola will always be remembered.
