In 1903 the Rev. Joseph E. Clayton was called to be principal of Manor's first black school. Under his leadership, the educational program included vocational and mechanical training, as well as the study of languages, arts, and sciences. In 1919 the facility became part of the public school system and was known as Clayton Vocational Institute. Clayton, who served as principal until 1925, later was an active leader in the Southern Tenant Farmers Union. Throughout its history, the separate school for black students produced a number of outstanding graduates.
