McKinney Polytechnic Institute (Lincoln County, KY)
Start Year : 1911
J. M. Bates was principal of the elementary school that operated six months out of each year. The one teacher, a woman, was paid $180 annually by the county. An estimated 60 students attended the school. The two story framed building was located on 100 acres of land. The U.S. Office of Education recommended that Lincoln County take over the operation and develop it into a county training school. For more see p. 279 for the 1915 report in Negro Education, by T. J.
