Carita Ross Gravely
Carita taught school at Axton Elementary for forty years, and in the same classroom! She was a no-nonsense type of person but her students remember her vividly and many kept in touch with her over the years. She would not let a student go hungry when they didn?t have lunch or money to buy lunch, as she made certain each of her students was happy and well fed. She kept newspaper clippings on her students and these were found by her sister, Betsy, when she died. Rita and Broaddus did not have children of their own, but counted her students as her children, along with her two nieces and two nephews.
