Charles H. Woodson, 81, the last principal of the old Bardstown Training School, died Friday, July 5, 1991, in Silver Springs, Md.
“He had a superb relationship with the students,” Martha Lewis, who taught at the school for blacks, said Tuesday afternoon.
Still, Lewis said, Woodson was a disciplinarian. But he explained to students why he was disciplining them.
In fact, she said, if he saw his students doing something wrong outside of school, he’d call them in the next day and counsel them.
