Debate Coach Extraordinaire

I was very pleased to read in The Sunday Chieftain that Myra Ellen Jenkins will be one of the inductees into the Central High School Hall of Fame on Saturday, October 12. She definitely deserves this honor! Myra Ellen taught at Central from 1943-50 and served as the debate coach there. It was my good fortune to be a member of her debate team. Myra Ellen motivated us with her passion and intellect, which resulted in most of the debaters working extra hard preparing for debates. We learned so much from this extraordinary woman! And she also made our field trips quite exciting. I still don’t know anyone else who can change their stockings while driving! Although Myra Ellen Jenkins passed away back in 1993, I remember her vividly and with great affection.
