Scottsburg Normal School
The Scottsburg Normal School was founded in the 1890s by Rev. S.H. Thompson, an inspiring teacher, brilliant preacher and vocalist with a love for sacred music. Apparently the normal school had a wonderful music program, with several early instructors, including Miss Emma Averett, Miss Kempe Carlton, and Miss Carrie Lee Stewart, deserving credit for that program. Per the website for Scottsburg Baptist Church, of which the normal school was affiliated, “the business manager of the college, Mr. W.E. Thurston lent his talent also. By 1955 a Hammon organ had been installed, choir robes were bought, and the choir was led by Mr. George Walden as director and Mrs. C.A. McKinney as organist.”
