Mildred Haverfield Roberts ’38

Mildred Haverfield Roberts ’38

In a sense Mildred Haverfield Roberts ’38 never left SHS.  

While still a student at age 17, Shelby Schools Superintendent C.G. Keck asked if she would help part-time in his office until she graduated.  That request and her acceptance proved a seminal moment.  A case could be made that Mildred served her entire career as the system’s “glue.”  She filled several administrative positions: assisting the superintendent, secretary to the principal at Central School, secretary to the bus superintendent, taking charge of kindergarten registration, determining which students would be riding buses and, seeing that all students were listed alphabetically in The Daily Globe, and more. 

Says a fellow alum, “None of us secretaries could have done the job that she did and did so well.  She was dedicated to her work.”
