"Booker T. Wins State Trophies" (Sapulpa Herald, May 15, 1947)
In the state wide interscholastic meet held at Langston University recently, the students of Booker T. Washington School won not only first place in the B Division but again won the grand sweepstake trophy. It was announced today by D. Adolph Williams, principal.
Booker T. had little trouble winning in the B Division where they contested against cities as McAlester, Guthrie, Luther, and others. From Williams: the credit for this fine showing goes to the hard work of the faculty and the spirit and will to work of the students. Of the 23 students to represent Booker T in the 37 contests only one failed to gain one or more points for the school.
The following students competed in the tests:
Roy Hardmond, Ralph Owens, Donald Foshee, Bishop Chapman, Wiley White, Mark McClosky, and Marcus Lynch were in the vocational agriculture department.
