Mrs. White's Kindergarten Reception

Sunday, April 22, 2-4 p.m.

When Kentucky suspended the public kindergarten system in 1959, Betty White bridged the educational gap, teaching 450 children in her Fort Wright home over a span of 19 years.

Betty White’s contribution to Northern Kentucky’s children is commemorated in a new exhibit, Mrs. White’s Kindergarten, opening this April. Past students have a chance to reminisce and today’s generation of preschoolers can catch a glimpse of what their grandparents‘ classrooms were like, complete with blackboards, crayons and cursive writing.

Former pupil Gabrielle Summe, now Kenton County clerk, and members of the White family will speak and invite others to share their memories of Mrs. White’s school. The United Way of Northern Kentucky, which is partnering with Behringer-Crawford on the importance of early education, will show a video on “My Pre-K,” the organization’s initiative for kindergarten readiness and early childhood education.

Admission to the opening reception and the museum is free for museum members, educators, former students of the school and members of the Northern Kentucky Heritage League. It is included with regular museum admission for all others. Tickets can be reserved HERE. The exhibit is funded in part by Betty White’s family and the Northern Kentucky Heritage League.
