Ruth E. Dameron Wins Award

The Bee (Danville, Virginia) 22 April 1927 (Page 9)

Ruth Dameron Wins Caswell's Speaking Contest
(Special To The Bee)

Yanceyville, N. C. April 22 (1927). "The Geo. Anderson Medal" for excellence in public speaking was awarded to Miss Ruth Dameron in a most spirited contest at the annual commencement of the Anderson consolidated held yesterday.

This medal which was offered by clerk of the court Anderson to the best contender among the boys and girls of the Anderson school, for public speaking was strenuously sought after by a number of pupils.

The Anderson school which ranks high among the best of consolidated schools in this section is located near the home of Mr. Anderson who for a number of years was county superintendent, and is an institution which is proving its real worth to the people of Caswell.

Miss Dameron is the granddaughter of Albert Florance and comment is being made on the fact that Mr. Anderson was the teacher of her mother years ago. And also that the speech of presentation was made by Judge Dan Walker, also a former pupil of Mr. Anderson, who is now judge of the County Court of Alamance county.

Ruth E. Dameron was the daughter of Rosa T. Florance and Louis Benjamin Dameron. Rosa T. Florance was the daughter of Albert B. Florance and Mattie Anderson.
