Biographical/Historical note

Sally Ann Conard

Sally Ann Clerico was born to Ernest L. Clerico and Mary Louise Hughes Clerico. She graduated from Roosevelt High School in Emporia, Kansas, in 1961. Sally attended Kansas State Teachers College of Emporia where she was a member of Alpha Sigma Tau sorority. She completed her Bachelor of Arts Degree at Kansas State Teachers College of Emporia in 1966, and completed her Master of Library Science Degree at the University of Hawaii in 1968. Sally married Kent L. Conard. She worked as an instructor and assistant cataloger in the William Allen White Library of Kansas State Teachers College of Emporia from 1970 to 1972. In 1985, she resumed working at the William Allen White Library at what had then become Emporia State University, and she retired in 2007 after a total of twenty-four years of library service. Kansas State Teachers College of Emporia

Kansas State Normal School’s name was officially changed in 1923 to Kansas State Teachers College of Emporia. Thomas W. Butcher was president at the time of the name change. David McFarlane, John Jacobs, John E. King, and John Visser were all Kansas State Teachers College presidents. Kansas State Teachers College of Emporia became Emporia Kansas State College in 1974. School Pins

The history of school pins prior to 1915 is fairly vague. In the spring of 1915, Kansas State Normal School classes discussed adopting an all-school class pin. The pin was to be known as the Kansas State Normal School class pin and would differ based on different degrees of graduation. The school pin was to be worn by all graduating classes. President Butcher and undergraduates favored the pins. The senior class, however, disliked the school pin idea and refused to pass the motion. The following semester on November 16, 1915, the black “K” was adopted as the Kansas State Normal school pin.
