W. J. Braham
MR. BRAHAM - CFFICE
Mr. Braham has been the superintendent
of the North Platte city school system
for the past eleven years. He is very
popular with the students and is respected
throughout the city because of his efficient
handling of the many problems connected
with the administration of the schools.
The superintendent is chosen by the Board
of Education, and they are in turn elected
by the voters of the city. The superinten-
dent is subject to the rules and regula-
tions of the board.
Mr. Braham graduated from Walnut
High School in Pennsylvania. He attended
Slippery Rock State Normal School, and
received his A. B. and M. A. degrees
from the Walnut Grove College in that
state. He has a number of hours toward
his Doctor's degree from Columbia Uni-
versity and the Southern Branch of the
University of California.
Mr. Braham has made an extensive
study of education and has had valuable
experience along these lines. He has
traveled over the greater part of the
United States and in every instance has
brought back some material that was of
interest and value to the schools and the
community. Mr. Braham is active in civic
affairs as well as educational circles.
Although Mr. Braham's duties call for
a great deal of his time, he always finds
opportunity to speak at assemblies and
to tell a "that reminds me" story.
Fern Breternitz is an alumna of the
North Platte High School having grad-
uated with the class of 1922. During her
high school career she took active part
in Girl Reserves and Student Council. She
was elected to the Student Council in her
Sophomore year and was a member for
the three years following. She is a charter
member of that organization.
The two years after her graduation she
was a reporter for the Lincoln County
Tribune. In 1924 she accepted the posi-
tion as private secretary for Mr. Braham.
In addition to her duties as secretary to
Mr. Braham, Fern does all the bookkeep-
ing for the Board of Education and has
proven to be a main link between the
superintendent and the board.
