Schools were more than educational institutions. They were also community social and civic Centers. In the case of Morven, teachers like Tom Cordell and John Lindsey were a big help to the farmers in the area. The Home Economics teachers, Allen Chapman and a lady named Poole from Newnan, Georgia were a big help to the mothers in the area.
