Treasure Chest Thursday: James Penn Daviss Teachers Certificate
My grandfather James Penn Daviss received his Texas Teachers Certificate in 1903. The Certificate was obtained from the Summer Normal Board of Examiners for Colored Teachers and recommended to the State Board Of Examiners by the Summer Normal School. This allowed him to teach the 2nd grade in Grimes County Texas for a period of Five years. Classes were held in the Little Flock Baptist Church.
