The Emily Myrtice Lynch Endowed Scholarship

Miss Emily Myrtice Lynch (1909-2007) grew up at the Lynch Home Place in Apollo, Putnam County, Georgia. She attended a one-room schoolhouse in Putnam County then graduated from Monticello (Georgia) High School.

After high school Miss Lynch attended Georgia State College for Women (GSCW) in Milledgeville.  As a student at GSCW, Myrtice "Mutt" Lynch was the President of the Math Club, a member of the Literary Guild and quite active in sports including basketball, tennis, and baseball.  In 1930 she earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies. She then went on to receive a Masters Degree in Mathematics from Columbia University in New York City. 

Miss Lynch spent her professional life teaching math.  Her career started in Lincoln County, Georgia then she taught at Girls High High and O'Keefe High School both in Atlanta.  Myrtice Lynch became the Math Coordinator for the Atlanta School System and stayed in that position until her retirement.  During her teaching career she received a one-year Ford Foundation Grant that allowed her to study math as it was being taught in schools around the world. She exemplified our ideal of life-long learning.

One former student, Phyllis Cole, noted, "We at O'Keefe were very fortunate to have her as a teacher." Another former student, Joyce Gould, commented, "What a wonderful, genteel, Southern Lady! I was privileged to be a student in Miss Lynch's math class when I was at O'Keefe High School. She was a special teacher who treated students with great respect."


Preferential consideration given to graduates of public school systems in Jasper County and Putnam County, Georgia;
