An unplanned teachng assignment may have temporarily detoured him from the path of history and photography, but Elvin Smith Jr. found his way back soon enough.
A 1960 graduate of Rineyville High School, Smith attended Western Kentucky University where he majored in elementary education with a minor in physical education. He graduated in 1965 and earned a master’s degree in 1967.
Smith began his 30-year career as a teacher at Maceo Elementary School in Daviess County.
“I was supposed to teach science and history,” Smith said.
