When Clem School closed in the late 1950’s, the students were transferred mostly to Prentiss but some to Pinola and other schools.
Our speaker on Clem, Joe Cosper, met his wife Peggy Roberts of Clem when she transferred to Prentiss.
Joe and Peggy live in Jones County now but they have kept their ties with Clem.
Joe is a researcher of the Stringer, Blackwell, Walters, Allen and other family lines of Jones and Covington County.
His love of history and research make him the logical choice for a program on Clem.
Is Clem a place or a state of mind? Come and find out at the Seminary Depot, Seminary Mississippi on Saturday, January 16th 10:00 AM.
All interested persons are invited to attend. For more information, call June Ellis at 601-797-3233 or Janet Smith at 601-947-4610 or e-mail Smith at email@example.com.
