HAPPENINGS
SUCCESSFUL STEPS TOWARD SCHOOL INTEGRATION: Report ft 1
WHAT'S HAPPENING IN CLARK COUNTY SCHOOLS?
Folk singing, poetry, Indian petroglyphs, and tempera paint were
recently a part of helping students at Kit Carson explore ideas
and discover themselves. Members of the American Association of
University Women planned the project and acted as hostesses at
the nine after-school sessions, voluntarily attended by forty
students. A similar program is now under way at Jo Mackey school.
For more information, call AAUW Pres. Mrs. Robin Morgan, 384-3968.
February 10, 1969
Evaluations from sixteen teachers, after completing an in-service course on
"Human Relations in the Classroom", revealed that many felt it should be a
"must" for every teacher. Instructor was Charles Silvestri.
The Integration Task Force is at work! Meeting weekly, with subcommittee meetings inbetween,
the group will present its recommendations to the School Board about March 1. You
are urged to communicate your ideas and concern, to any of the following members:
Dr. Ken Seifert, Chairman
C. Donald Brown, School Trustee
Allck Mackie, School Trustee

The Westside Council, composed of principals and teachers (both Negro and white) of the
six Westside schools, has begun implementation of a special program for Westside students
in the areas of (1) health, (2) in-service of teachers to orient and prepare them to
teach disadvantaged youngsters, (3) development of self-concept, and (4) language arts
development. Schools involved are Jo Mackey, Highland, Kit Carson, C.V.T. Gilbert, Matt
Kelly, and Madison. Co-ordinator of the project is Mrs. Mabel Hoggard,
Sixth grade students at Madison were guests of the Orr Junior
Human Relations Commission at a recent school musical. The
following week a cookie-icing party was held at Madison by the
two groups. Next? A Valentine party on February 13.
Several classroom exchanges between black and white schools are in the offing. More later.'
With this first issue of HAPPENINGS, the League of Women Voters of Las Vegas Valley
begins a twice-monthly featuring of positive black-white relations. Our purpose?
To encourage, inspire, and motivate the citizens of Clark County to join the efforts
toward a goal of integration combined with quality education for all our children.

Pioneer
educator
retires
By Laura Deauue
| . R-J Staff Writer ' W # '
! &lte pioneered the way for Itiiersgpf;,,
her race when k lftjfi she became the
first black 'educator' in Clark County.
Later she was in'ihe vanguard for
local school integration.
Now, after 24 years of teaching children
how to read and write, she is retiring.
That's Mabel Mfiggard who teaches
at C.V.T, Gilbert Prestige School, and
on June 5 will put away the gradebooks
and demurely retire.
But Mrs, Howard only plans to "retire"
to a new frontier involving children—
the establishment "of a good
feeding program in the schools."
Her hair now is streaked a soft grey
and she wil politely but firmly refuse
to tell anyone her age, but Mrs. Hoggard,
like a true Nevada pioneer, is
all ready for her new battles.
"Nothing in the world is as important
to me right now," she said, "as
getting better school lunches for the
children."
Mrs. Hoggard will work through a
church task force community council
which: will stress' communication between
the schools and parents.
"If we can reach these parents,
many who have to work around the
clock and can't come to meetings, we
will have accomplished much," Mrs.
Hoggard said.
"When I came here from teaching in
Williamson, W. Va,, in 1944, Las Vegas
was segregated to the Nth degree,"
she said, going back tc< the beginning.
"Some relatives persuaded me to go to
work for I he USO as a secretary
1 hough, instead of going to Los Angeles
when: I had a job with the housing
. ai^jprite." , . ^ v
"A number of people were fearful
when I applied, for the teaching job.
But Maude Frazier, who was retiring
superintendent, and Walter Johnson,
the incoming superintendent of
schools, convinced (lie school trustees
to hire me without a contract for one
year. I .started in September, 1948. and
taught second grade at the old Westside
school."
"That first year-1 was the talk of the
town," she said, laughing. "The kids
were really very excited about having
a black teacher. They were mostly I
Mexican and white children then, not'
many blacks."
"Next year when my lime was up,
the trustees ail said yes, they'd put me
on contract. And they employed three
more blacks. Two of them are still
teaching and the other became a principal."
Mrs. Hoggard, who stayed at Westside
for 17 years, also taught at Matt
Kelly and Highland schools. She took
time out to work with the Westside
Council .and Clark County integration
program^ and has been at Gilbert
since Jawary.
Her husband, Dav'id, shares her interest
in community work - and there
are three boys in the family, Charles,
David Jr., and Donald. By now a number
of her former students ha ve grownup
and become teachers themselves—
"quite a few teachers," she remarked.
"It's been interesting to see the
schools in the city grow, the blackteachers
come in, and the quality of
education expanded," she added. "I
see more and more qualified people
moving in and, better housing for the
blacks. "When we came, blacks worked
on the dam and nobody expected them
to stay, but they did. lit was almost
impossible . then to secure any houswould
come during her career.
Mrs. Hoggard stated that the school district
representatives and zone supts. were still guilty
of not consulting blacks, when these programs
are in the planning stage.
Mrs. Hoggard also stated that she will carry
on the fight for the school lunch program, so
dearly needed for the Westside, and for all
areas of improvement needed in our communi-

Mabel Boggard's middle name is
tenacity.
When she gets an idea, she just won't
let go until it's a reality.
Through her we have learned of the
excellent program sponsored by the
West Las Vegas Credit Union to encourage
children to save.
It's so much more positive than a
threat by members of the SCLC to block

Mabel Hoggard, one of our most
eminent citizens, suffered a slight
stroke recently. With Mabel s bouncing
enthusiasm and everlasting optimism,
she undoubtedly will be back
soon pursuing her ambitious plan of
teaching schoolchildren to save their
money for the future.
Meanwhile, Mabel is recuperating
at her son's home in the Bay area.
