Historical Research Report: The Edwards-Franklin House of Surry County by Bruce S. Cheeseman with reference to the Edwards, Franklin and McMickle families
"Perhaps no person in Surry County, not even Superintendent John W. Comer himself, knows more about the inside working of the Surry County public schools than Mrs. Lettie Herring Edwards, the efficient secretary in the superintendent's office at Dobson. "Lettie", as she is familiarly known to many hundreds who visit the Surry educational headquarters, may almost be classed as a fixture there, for she has been in her present position for the past 12 years. During that time she has seen many changes and a tremendous growth in the Surry schools. Mrs. Edwards, a very remarkable woman in that she doesn't mind telling her age, said she was born in Mount Airy August 31, 1908, and has spent the greater portion of her life there. She was graduated from the Mount Airy High School and later graduated from Draughon's Business College in Winston-Salem. She first took up her present work as secretary to the superintendent of schools and clerk of the Surry county board of education in 1928, serving six years under former Superintendent E. S. Hendren and the past six years under Superintendent Comer. Mrs. Edwards, who makes her home with her father, J. F. Herring, in Mount Airy, is a member of the First Baptist Church in the Granite City. She said she has no particular hobby, although she gets much pleasure from reading, the radio and the movies in her spare time."
