Biography

Myra was born April 28, 1907 in Mobile, Alabama. She was the daughter of William Leonard and Mary Mckay

Furnished by Ellen Leonard Sapp, Daughter of Myra Belle & Summers Leonard

The following things is some things I found tucked in Myra Belle's high school memory book.

I. It is either a newspaper announcement, or something she composed for that purpose:

At the house of Mr. and Mrs Hubert King on the Bristol Highway, in the presence of only a few friends, Mr. S. L. Leonard and Miss (Ira) Myra Belle Leonard were united in marriage October 2, 1928 with Rev. Harry H. Leonard officiating.

Mrs. Leonard is the attractive daughter of Mr and Mrs Edgar Leonard of Mobile, Alabama. She is a very talented young woman, taking part in church and social circles.

Mr. Leonard is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Leonard of Normal Heights, Johnson City. He is also the brother of L. B. Leonard of this city, where he is connected with the Cross - Leonard Corporation. They will make their home at College Heights, Johnson City, Tennessee. Immediately after the ceremony, a supper honoring the bride and groom and wedding guests was given by Mr. and Mrs King.

II. Is the first grocery list when she and Summer set up housekeeping:

Groceries: Sugar .50; Salt .10, Soda .05, Baking powder .25, Lard .50, Flour 1.25, 12 lb. meal .45, Fat Boiling Meat .25, Breakfast bacon .35, Steak 1lb. .35, Oatmeal .35, Prunes .25, Coffee .35, Vanilla Flavoring .05, Super Suds .10, Octagon Soap .07, Ivory .10, Mavis Talc .10

Hardware: Broom .70, Bread Pan .25, Stewing Vase .25, Tea Kettle .50, 1 Platte (sp) .15, 1 bowl .15, toothpaste

Myra Belle Leonard graduated from Mobile High School in 1927. She was a member of the National Honor Society, and Alpha Beta Lambodia Sigma, another honor society. She wrote the senior class prophecy for the annual, The Mohian. She then traveled to Johnson City to visit relatives met Summers, who was her second cousin, and they were married October 2, 1928Furnished by Ellen Leonard Sapp, daughter of Myra Belle & Summers Leonard

Coach Robert Paynter thinks that Myra wrote this letter to the Johnson City Press - Chronicle about him: To the Press - Chronicle:

Respect is due the Press - Chronicle for inviting citzens to submit in writing something about what is GOOD in Johnson City. Fortunately most of what can be said about Johnson City is good. If such were not the case, it would be unsafeto stay in our homes or to walk down the street. When a spotlight is placed on the bad, citzens are so startled that the GOOD, for a while, is overshadowed.

Among those of us who may be more mature, there is a desire for our children to have superior training and to be influenced by adults who possess the greatest store of leadership qualities. We should never overlook the contributions made by real men and women to future citzens, the youth of this area. There are many such individuals in our town. At this time however, attention is directed toward a man who would be the last to permit public praise on his behalf; but the life he is living with and for the young people among whom he works is something which should be considered as one major example of GOOD here. This man is Robert Paynter, a young man who is good; what's more, he is good for something. And the quality of this goodness will express itself in the present and future actions of young lives he has touched.

Robert Paynter's friends call him Bob. Youthful admirers call him Coach. Professionally, he is Director of Health and Physical Education at East Tennessee State College Training School. As basketball coach, from a small number, he led in the development of a basketball team about which he has every reason to be proud. With a minimium of reserve strength, he developed one of the powerful teams of this area.

Although he expects a high quality of proficiency at play, his real purposes are much higher. On several occassions, he has forgone the possibility of winning when he knew that the healthful condition of a player should keep him out of the game. He will sacrifice winning if the moral and ethical standards set up by his group are broken by any member of the organization he leads.

But in other areas than on the playing court, Bob Paynter wields a powerful influence for good among the youth with whom he works. He speaks with action, louder than he speaks with words. He practices dealing consistently, fairly, and honestly with youngsters. Although firm, he is deliberate and soft spoken. While he is interested in playing hard to win, he exhibits a far greater interest in sportsmanship, fair play, spiritual, ethical, and moral values. His clean personal habits, his speech, his sense of humor, his youthful vigor tempered with mature judgement, his philosophy of life, his splendid example are all worthy of recognition.

Yes, there is GOOD - here; and while paying attention to everything wholesome in our town and to all the good people in Johnson City, for reasons presented above, why not take a look at Bob Paynter?.
