I have many memories of the College, Miss Susie, and Miss Jenny. I took piano lessons from Miss Pernie Wiley for a number of years. Because she was also a teacher for the Memphis City School system, her students were required to pass a yearly examination. Any other piano teacher within the school system could administer the exam, and I always HOPED Miss Jenny would be my proctor. She was such a sweet, gentle lady, and I was sad when she died.
And yes, the College is now a parking lot, and that is sad. Another piece of Memphis history has been lost.
