Judy Liscum, a Canton native, attended grades K-8 at the Canton Grammar School. In 1963, she accepted a 6th grade teaching position at this same school and taught alongside several former one-room school teachers. Most of these ladies had joined the Grammar School staff due to centralization. Following retirement from Canton Central, Judy worked as a supervisor of student teachers for twelve years in the Education Department at SLU. Currently, she is the schoolmarm at the St. Lawrence Power and Equipment Museum in Madrid. She is a local history author, and has written, and self-published, four nonfiction books.
