Mrs. Hatchett was my fifth grade teacher at Cobb Memorial School and was an AMAZING educator! She inspired me to also become a teacher and was such a jewel of a person! I remember her classroom being so much fun and she was so creative and happy to be our teacher! I will ALWAYS remember her as my favorite teacher and pray that as I teach, I can remember her fine example and make her proud. I love you Mrs. Hatchett!

I was so sorry to hear of Margaret's passing. I taught music at the elementary schools in Caswell County in the mid 70's and she and her sister Nettie were extremely helpful to me in learing the in's and out's of the Caswell School System. I knew her daughter and taught Nettie's children. My condolences to everyone in her family. I know what a huge loss this is. Brad Sparks

Oh how sad. She was my fifth grade teacher and Ms Blackwell was my fourth grade teacher. I loved all 3 of these precious ladies!!!!!! The last time I saw them both they remembered me , gave me hug and both looked so beautiful as always! My dad brought the Christmas tree every year while I was at Lawsonville. Please, please give my regards to Ms. Blackwell and tell her they were some of the best memories of my life!!! You were so blessed to have such an awesome mom! What a special place they all 3 held in my heart!!!
