In Proverbs chapter eight verse eleven it states, "Wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it." I am sure that to Lula Gladden these words were something that she cherished every day. Miss Gladden was both in the Gladden Springs community October 15, 1876 and spent fifty-one years of her life educating others.
Once against the sky
Came the walls of Alma Mater
So rugged and so high
Forward ever be our watchword
Conquer without fail;
For our hearts shall love thee ever,
Alma Mater, Hail!
Not only was Miss Gladden's formal education important to her but so was her faith. Lula was a member of the Ladies Aid Society which also included the following ladies: Mrs. S.M. Barnett, Mrs. Forney Bradley, Mrs. W.S. Cox, Sr., Mrs. Tom Moreland, Mrs. Hardy Rhyne and Miss Martha Holbrook. These ladies met at Chatsworth Elementary School. Their dedication led to more formal church services and finally to the formation of the First Baptist Church of Chatsworth.
