She retired in 1901.The present day Holladay Elementary School opened its doors and welcomed its first students for the 1968-69 school year. At that time there were no kindergarten classes in Henrico County and elementary school went through the seventh grade. In the 1974-75 school year the county added kindergarten classes to all elementary schools.
