Smith November 10, 2005
leaving Hickman in June of '96, I spent a year at the Divinity School of
the University of Chicago. While there, I became involved in an alternative
education model which continues to be my passion to this day: Sudbury schooling.
I moved around a bit, and currently store my stuff in Boulder, Colorado.
I got married in June of 2004 after 6.5 years of cohabitation, but we've
been separated for a few months now. I've currently got a day job
at the University of Colorado in order to save up money for returning to
active Sudbury staffing and getting my new nonprofit (The Center for Advancing
Sudbury Education) off the ground. I'd love to catch up with anyone
who remembers me from my Columbia days. Best wishes to all...
Davault Williams was the third child of Rev. William A. and Margaret
Emma Williford Davault. She lived in Columbia, Missouri where she
taught at Columbia High School and David H. Hickman High School from 1924-1963.
There she was director of speech activities and was vice-principal for
15 years. In 1917 she was married to Charles H. Williams. Their
daughter, Helen Emily, now Mrs. Brooke Peirce, was head of the English
Department of Baltimore University and her husband was head of English
at Gaucher College. Mrs. Williams graduated from Will Mayfield College
and Southeast Missouri State Teachers College, then received her A. B.
degree from Missouri University and a Master's degree from Washington University
at St. Louis. She was elected to the honor organizations of Phi Beta
Kappa, Pi Lambda Theta and Delta Kappa Gamma. Her social sorority
is Gamma Phi Beta an she was active in P. E. O. and Quota Club. She
was a member of the First Baptist Church of Columbia where she wrote and
helped present a pageant on the history of the church for its sesqui-centennial.
While at Hickman High School, Mrs. Williams directed the senior plays,
the assemblies and, for several years, coached the debate team. She
was most dedicated to the speech choir work because of the influence of
beautiful poetry on her students and the joy it brought to audiences.
The following paragraphs from a program folder, used when the choir performed
for a Summer Arts Festival in 1960 at the State University in Brockport,
New York, tells of that achievement. It said, "A combination of dancing,
dramatics and narration is the basic make-up of the 115-member nationally
known Hickman Verse Speaking
Choir. It has performed at the National Convention of Oral Reading
Arts in Chicago and appeared before the National Insurance Convention at
the Jefferson Hotel in St. Louis. In New York State they presented
programs at three branches of the State University, the Nazareth College
at Rochester and Cornell University at Ithaca. Mrs. Helen D. Williams,
a teacher by vocation, is the originator, producer and director of the
choir. One of the highlights of her career was when she was commissioned
by the Missouri State Teachers Association to write and present a choric
drama for their centennial before 16,000 people."
