Centenary School has long been known as an excellent school; probably due in a great part to the fact that they paid the highest salary of any school in the county. This, while it is not necessarily true in all cases, is a very good indication that the best is expected of the teacher. For years Harry L. Way remained at the head of the school.

The school house was destroyed by the famous Literberry cyclone of May 18, 1883, at which time it stood one half a mile east of the present site.

Past teachers have been: L. F. Jordan, Frances Savage, Kathryn Abney, Nelia Widmayer, now Mrs. D. E. King, Henry McKeown, Alice Buckley, Alma Ross, now Mrs. Jos. Drinkwater, Jessie Beadles and Marguerite Campbell.

Miss Ruth Reynolds will teach during 1914-1915.
