The name of the newest teacher inductee into the Kingsport City Schools Hall of Fame is a familiar one.
"We are really excited that Cora R. Cox will be a member of this year's inductees into the Kingsport City School's Teachers Hall of Fame," says Andy True, the KCS assistant superintendent for administration in an exclusive interview with the Douglass Website.
"It's incredibly exciting and an honor to recognize Cora Cox to go into the Hall of Fame. She was certainly an individual that made an incredible impact on our Kingsport community, students and families."
From her biography written by the Douglass Alumni Association, the former Cora Rogers was born in the piney woods of Buena (pronounced BEE-u-nah) Vista outside Camden, Arkansas in 1936. Even her relatives, especially her late aunt used to say the teaching profession seemed to be in her character even back then.
