It was in Mrs. Oletha Grimes’s 5th grade class that Elvis sang Old Shep durinig the Friday Chapel Program.  Mrs. Grimes was impressed with his talent and suggested he enter the MS-AL Fair & Dairy Show talent contest.


This may be the earliest Elvis autograph written in a fellow 5th grade classmates autograph book.
