Unlike many children, Jean Martin Hill went to the Lincoln Institute instead of Eminence High School.
An uncle who had no children of his own would drive her to the school in Shelby County where she stayed during the week. Occasionally, Hill stayed at the school on weekends. The adjustment wasn’t easy at first, but the hardships Hill and many families endured were a part of life then.
Her parents stressed the need for education and the doors it could open to a better life. When opportunity came, you took it — it wasn’t a choice.
