    History

    Odell Clausell (1907-1952) was born on June 18, 1907, in Hazlehurst, MS, one of eleven children of Listen and Alice Clausell.  Odell received her early education in the public schools of Copiah County and went from there to New Orleans, LA, where she completed high school at Straight College, now a part of Dillard University.


    She received her bachelor's degree from Tuskegee Institute and desiring to become proficient in her chosen profession of teaching, she pursued further education and received her master's degree from Indiana University.


    Odell began her teaching career in the Jackson Public School District at the Smith Robertson School in September, 1929, and was later transferred to the Martin School where she worked until the time of her death.  She was a great lover of children and regarded each child as an individual.
