Ms. Margaret Wade

youngmargaret.jpgA graduate of Delta State Teacher's College, Margaret Wade was confirmed as an assistant professor of health, physical education, and recreation in September of 1959. Ms. Wade had played on one of the earlier teams when she was a student at Delta Teacher's College before the sport was removed from the campus. When it was agreed that women's basketball should be reinstated, Dr. Lucas with assistance from Dr. Wyatt and Mr. Forest Wyatt, approached Ms. Wade with the proposition of heading the new team. Her success with her Cleveland High School teams had become almost legendary. Certainly the same could be said of her leadership of the Lady Statesmen.
