Pearcy Elementary School is named in honor of Clara Odeal Pearcy. Clara Odeal Pearcy was born July 27, 1913, the third of four children, to parents, Robert Russel and Annie Lena Unnewehr Pearcy. She attended Arlington schools, graduating from Arlington High School as valedictorian in 1930. She declined three college scholarships she was offered in order to help care for her mother. Odeal later was able to attend college at NTAC (now UTA) and North Texas State at Denton while she taught on credential and finally graduated magna cum laude from Abilene Christian College in 1947. Her elementary-school teaching career began in 1942 in Hood County, before she went to Pantego School in Arlington the next year. In 1956, she helped open Blanton School, where she taught third grade until she retired in 1977. In 2000, her extraordinary dedication and example of teaching was recognized by the naming of a new school, the Odeal Pearcy Elementary School, in her honor. Miss Pearcy passed away on January 11, 2007 at the age of 93.
