History of Como School ln the fall of 1914, the few families in Como felt the need of a school. A teacher was employed in the person of Mrs. Lucinda Baker. This first school had an enrollment of eleven pupils, some under age and others of age. Among those first pupils was Mrs. Ruby G. Crawford Jones, who is currently employed as a teacher at Como Elementary School. Mrs. Baker taught for two years. Due to the' decrease in enrollment the school closed. , A second term was begun in 1917 with Mrs. Tennessee Smith lthe mother of our own Teacher-Counselorl, Jenkins E. Smith. The followingyear 1918, Mrs. Pearl Walker Connor was called as head teacher. After World War l, the community started to grow. As more people moved into the community, there was a need for a bigger and better school building. Mr. R. N. Riddles was county superintendent at that time, and a building with two rooms was built on the southeast corners of Faron and Bonnell Streets. Mrs. Gertrude Wilherson-Starners was made head teacher with an assistant, Mrs. Geneva Carrington. Later by Mrs. Jessie Raliegh, and Mrs. Ruth A. Greenwood who recentlyvretired from Como Elementary School joined the staff. Mrs. M. L. Paterson came to the school as a teacher in 1931. The school continued to grow. A custodian was needed. Men of the com- munity had helped supply coal for heating and keeping the building and grounds clean. This task was too much. A full time custodian, Mr. John Adkins was employed in 1933. The community continued to grow and so did the school. Other teachers were added. ln 1935, the school had outgrown its site. A new one was purchased and the school moved to Libbey, Goodman, Horne and Holloran Streets. In 1936, Mr. J. Martin Jacquet, retiring principal at Dunbar High School was hired and remained for 10 years. Mr. Oscar M. Williams suc- ceeded him in 1946. The present brick building was erected in 1950. Mr. Wilbur H. Byrd, current principal succeeded Mr. Williams in 1967. The community has continued to grow. Now the school which started out as a one-room, frame building, one teacher, eleven pupil school, has grown into two separate schools with an enrollment of over 1,900 pupils. However, this year is historical, indeed, because 1971 marks the last year that there will be a high school in this area. The beloved Como Junior-Senior High School is scheduled to close as such and in its place will be Como Middle School with grades six through eight. Q
