This second volume of Lest We Forget: Education in Wilkes County, North Carolina, which spans the years 1975 to 2009, continues the first volume’s celebration and memorialization of the lives and significant contributions of county school personnel in the “Great State of Wilkes.” While the first volume of Lest We Forget (1778–1978) featured only teachers and administrators, the publication committee of the Wilkes County Retired School Personnel worked for nearly a decade on Volume II to collect and edit the biographies of all county school personnel — from superintendents, classroom teachers, specialists, and assistants to those in the departments of transportation, maintenance, and administration. In addition, Lest We Forget: Volume II includes over fifty images of historical schools in Wilkes County, as well as the new, state-of-the-art middle and high schools.
