Mt. Sterling Collegiate Institute    Mt. Sterling    Kentucky    1909    
    
    founded by Professor/Rev. Wm. H. Cord, who was the Principal of Hazel Green Academy, “the Mother Mountain School,” for sixteen years (1890-1906).  Cord proposed that his new school be named, “Montgomery College,” but that name evidently did not materialize.  One of his sons, Prof. Robert I. Cord, was a teacher there and may well have continued his father’s legacy for some years.  Prof. Wm H. Cord died teaching in his Institute classroom on April 8, 1910 at the age of 45.  He was widely respected as a minister (Disciples of Christ) and stern, disciplined, but fair educator in eastern Kentucky.    Hazel Green Herald:  Thursday, January 28, 1909, Vol. 24, No. 25;
