Mrs. White's Kindergarten

NOW ON EXHIBIT

betty white photo 1 resizedWhen 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.



Former pupils of Betty White’s Fort Wright kindergarten and members of the community are invited to view this new exhibit honoring Mrs. White's contributions to early education in Northern Kentucky. 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 Greater Cincinnati, 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.
