Title Lucy A Phillips-Teacher-Friend
Description School and Dixie College before coming to Snow, and also earned her Master's Degree at BYU. She later did graduate work at the University of Wisconsin, the University of Washington and other major Universities. Her first trip to Ephraim aboard the Sanpete Valley Creeper was an experience long remembered. Near Fountain Green she admired the mountains while the train crew hunted rabbits. Nearing Ephraim, Snow and Weber were playing football in a field by the cemetery. The game was tied with two minutes left and Snow on Weber's 20-yard line. Along came a funeral procession. Time-out was called, the internment completed, and play resumed and ended in a tie. She watched and aided in the growth of Snow College, serving as Chairman of the Division of Humanities which included English, Literature, Art, Drama and Music. In addition to her other responsibilities, she taught English, Short Story, and American Literature, as well as being counselor, being involved in extra curricular activities, and supervising the Snowonian. Snowdrift, and Scribbler's Club, among other things. As I entered Snow College, my first Freshman English class was under her supervision. My first English essay began, "So this is Miss Phillips," and went on to describe the characteristics 1 found so admirable in her. She seemed a bit firm, but as I learned to know her better, I found that underneath that firmness lay integrity and "a quality of standing for the right, an understanding heart filled with sympathy, love and gentleness." Many things were learned in that English class about exploring the world through books. Her students learned there was no plagiarism in that class. She must have read every book we ever thought of perusing. 149
