"One of the first educators- C.D. Griffin, professor at the Boys Industrial School in Semmes around the turn of the Century, directed the institution under a strict atmosphere, running a dairy farm at the same time; all completely managed by the boys. The kindhearted gentleman taught the boys and many area people at no charge, and held an annual picnic on the school grounds each Fourth of July."
