“Ms. Carylene,” as she was known to her students, began her teaching career in 1932, teaching first grade in Lavon. She taught first and fourth grades for many years and served as an elementary principal. Ms. Carylene was also selected as an Outstanding Elementary Teacher in 1974 in recognition of her contributions to education and service to the community, her family members said. Carylene McClendon Elementary School in the Community ISD is named for her.
