Elvis attended Lawhon School through the 5th grade. Located at 140 Lake Street. It was in walking distance from his home. Gladys walked him to school everyday. Not because she was afraid for him to go alone – she was afraid he would skip school with the other boys.
He signed this in a fifth grade classmate’s autograph book.
Elvis had at least two loves while attending Lawhon. Eloise Bickerstaff was handed a note by Elvis as she boarded the school bus to go home. It read – I have found another girlfriend. The first of many such revelations to be sure. The love of his life while in Tupelo was Magdeline Morgan. They both attended the First Assembly of God Church often singing duets together.
