Edna L. Anderson, daughter of Alex Anderson and Martha Adeline "Adda" Rowles Anderson.

Edna was a School Teacher, and never married.

The following is from: The Hutchinson News - May 23, 1959, By Ida Mae Frick

Teaching youngsters requires keeping in pace with their ever broadening background of knowledge.

Well aware of this is Edna Anderson, principal of Valley Pride School. In September she will begin her 26th year at the now four-teacher school.

"There is a difference today in the way you approach teaching," said the silver-haired principal. "Youngsters can be appealed to the same as ever. They're all eager to learn and they have access to more information through the many avenues we have today."

Proof of this was the pre-schooler who came to school with his mother the day after the Cities Service explosion in Valley Pride community. He made this prediction, "If we have another boom like that one, I'll be the first in orbit."

This year the principal, a native of Partridge, taught 21 first and second graders. According to the teacher the exceptional pupils have to be kept busy. "You can't just stop at some point just because it isn't in the second grade curriculum," she said.

A number of the students bring their lunches. They and their teacher sit around the table and while munching sandwiches play educational games. Railroad spelling is a favorite. The children have also learned many of the states and their capitals. It isn't unusual for a second grader to spell S-a-c-r-a-m-e-n-t-o.
