On Friday, September 9th, the Tatum Eagles will become Honorary Mayflower Panthers.  Tonight, we would like to spotlight some interesting facts about Mayflower:

MAYFLOWER WAS A CONSOLIDATION OF COMMUNITY SCHOOLS THROUGH OUT TATUM ISD IN 1947

The first football team at Mayflower was in 1949 when Tatum Colored High School Consolidated with Mayflower

Many students went on to serve at the local, state and National level. Gussie Daniels worked in the Foreign Service and became Deputy Consul to many foreign countries. He took pride in speaking five languages and was an officer in charge of U.S. Affairs in South Africa.

A new modern high school was built in the 50’s in the community of Mayflower in the Wake of Brown vs. Topeka

From 1947-67 Mayflower was a full fledged accredited High School.

Excellence exemplified in student success

Known for excellence in science and math along with the core curriculum and athletics

Vocational Programs were outstanding along with the core curriculum

Students exposed to the National Science Foundation at an early age

High School Science Teacher and Coach Dr. Maurice Mills later became a professor at Tennessee State University

Mayflower competed in the Prairie View Interscholastic League in Academics and Athletics

Identity was a hallmark at Mayflower – Students were told that they were somebody every day and that serving is an important ingredient to success. 

The most grateful students will tell you Mayflower taught them the three B’s:

           How to be, How to behave, and How to become.

These are really cool that in a town of around 1000 people and maybe less at that time went in to do such incredible things.

On Friday, September 9th, the Tatum Eagles will become Honorary Mayflower Panthers.  Here is the prayer that was taught, learned, and recited before every football game:

MAYFLOWER FOOTBALL PRAYER
Gracious Master help us endure to the end and put in execution the things the coaches have taught.
And believe that whatever happens on the field of play happens for the betterment of the team.
When the game is over let us be able to say with all sincerity; we fought a good fight, we finished the course, we kept the faith.

Repeat
Team won’t be beaten
Can’t be beaten
All for one
And one for all
