History of Lizzie M. Burges
    Lizzie M. Burges was born in Seguin, Texas, on March 4, 1883. She was the daughter of Alice and Harry Burges, second in a family of six children. Miss Burges was a graduate of the original Guadalupe College. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree  from this college in 1904.
   She began her teaching career the following fall after permanent certification. The late Dr. W.B. Ball was her first principal at the A. Lincoln School on the site of the present Lizzie M. Burges School. The Lincoln School was later named Ball High School. Here, Miss Burges taught her beloved children until her retirement because of poor health. Death came on February 23, 1948.
    A modest, lovely woman; a dedicated, conscientious, capable teacher; a consecrated Christian worker; a lover of music, nature, children and family; a person beloved by all who knew her, this was our dear Miss Burges.
