  Wesley College Fine Report

Educational secretary John E. Roach in making report to the Methodist Conference at Dallas last week for the educational institutions of this great church stated that "Wesley College has had the largest increase in enrollment over the previous year of any of the five schools under the North Texas Conference supervision.

The five Methodist schools are:  SMU at Dallas, TWC at Fort Worth, Kidd-Key at Sherman, Southwestern at Georgetown, and Wesley College at Greenville.  And of these, Wesley has shown the greatest gain and report further shows that the present editor of the SMU paper is a Wesley product, James Lovell, and another Wesley graduate, Emma Lee Brown of Nevada, is editor of the Texas Woman's College annual and that McMurray college, of Abilene, has for four years had a Wesley College product as editor of that school journal while the students generally are making good universities.

It was also shown that ten percent of the ministers in the North Texas Conference have been students of Wesley College.

Home people who have contributed to Wesley College and ex-students everywhere will be pleased to know that Wesley College holds this fine record in the North Texas Conference.  (November 10, 1927, The Greenville Messenger)
