A Lady of Learning: Mary Lou Edwards

“WE OFTEN PLAYED SCHOOL when I was a child and because I was oldest, I always was the teacher. We sometimes used my mother’s teaching books,” Mary Lou shares. What began as playing teacher set in motion more than a half century of educating Lake area youth. Mary Lou grew up in Grovespring, Missouri (about 20 miles south of Lebanon). She remembers learning how to spell embroidery floss, and how to weigh items and tabulate bills at her parents’ general store. Teachers knowingly suggested Mary Lou start school, and she entered first grade at age four. She enjoyed school and progressed so well that she graduated at 16. She began formally instructing students at the age of 17.
