Mother: Genevieve Carr
Wife of Dr. J. Claude Wingo
Rock Springs Miner no. 43 October 27, 1906

Candidate for the office of County Superintendent of Schools come before the voters of Sweetwater county as a candidate for the first time, though she is well known amongst them by her successful work in the public schools.

Miss Hale was born and brought up in Iowa, where she graduated from high school in her home town. Later she removed to Nebraska where she completed her training in the Fremont Normal School, at Fremont. She began her chosen career as a teacher, in Nebraska, but decided to enter the field in Wyoming and accordingly came to Rock Springs about ten years ago.

For nine years she was a most successful teacher in our public schools, when last spring, on the resignation of County Supt. Nellor, she was appointed to fill the vacancy as County Supt. In this work she had proved as successful as in the school room, having up-to-date methods and the necessary executive ability to fill the office. She is fully in touch with school work and has been for the greater part of her life, and for this reason should be continued in the position.

We publish below a letter written Miss Hale by the city board of education, on her resignation from the schools, which shows the esteem in which she was held by that body. The parents of the many children whom she has successfully started in their school work, know for themselves her value as a teacher. The letter is as follows:

School District No. 4
Sweetwater County
Rock Springs, Wyo., April 12, 1906
County Supt.

My Dear Miss Hale:--

At a meeting of the Board of School Trustees of School District No. 4, held in the Main Building, on Monday, April 9th, your resignation was read to the Board and same was accepted.

It was not without feelings of regret that the Board took this step because your long term of employment in this district shows that your work was well performed and faithfully done.

Their best wishes, however, go with you into your newer and larger sphere of work, and they have no doubt that the qualities that made you a valued teacher in this district will be fully exemplified in your work as County Superintendent of Schools of Sweetwater county.

Very Sincerely yours,
Board of Education,
