Honoring Mrs. White

Northern Kentucky’s Behringer-Crawford Museum, located at 1600 Montague Road in Devou Park, Covington, has a new exhibit opening on Saturday, March 24, to honor the life and commitment of the late kindergarten teacher Betty White.  Mrs. White was known for teaching over 450 students in her home after Kentucky suspended its Kindergarten program in 1959.

The opening of the exhibit is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will display what classrooms were like when Mrs. White was teaching. The event will also feature former pupils and family members of Mrs. White sharing memories of her school and The United Way of Greater Cincinnati discussing the importance of early childhood education.

Admission for this opening is free for museum members, educators, former students of the school and members of the Northern Kentucky Heritage League, and is included in regular museum admission. You can reserve tickets here or visit for more details.
