Student Makes Amazing Progress in 1921


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 2/3/1921.

Brooksville Has Bright Boy

John W. Yoak, teacher of the Brooksville public school, was a caller at the Chronicle office Saturday.  He called our attention to how the Cincinnati Post had been bragging on one of the pupils of that city's school and then went on to tell us about one of his pupils who is yet further advanced than the star pupil of Cincinnati's schools.

The boy is Master Harlan Bower.  He is six years old and is in the third and fourth grades, having completed the primary grades in the fall months of school.  He has no trouble keeping up with pupils much older than himself and always stands at the head of his classes.  He is a bright and intelligent little man and is a hard student.

The young man is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Rome Bower, of Brooksville.
