Feaver Addresses One-Room Schoolhouse Dedication Ceremonies
USAO President John Feaver addressed an outdoor crowd of 150 on Saturday morning for the long-awaited dedication of the restored One-Room School project in Chickasha. Sponsored by the Oklahoma Centennial as an official state event, the dedication welcomed state officials and a crowd of Chickasha citizens to cut the ribbon for the first structure in the Loretta Y. Jackson African American Museum. The century old structure was found on a Verden farm, moved to Chickasha and painstakingly restored. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. Feaver is chairman Preservation Oklahoma and led the plan to put the Oklahoma College for Women National Historic District on the national register in 2001.
