SHAWNEE, Okla. (BP)--Two 97-year-old twins, retired teachers Sadie Gardner Blanton of Shawnee, Okla., and Madie Gardner Shaffer of Guymon, Okla., have been named as recipients of the Profile In Excellence Award by Oklahoma Baptist University's alumni association.

"A love for learning and a genuine, compassionate interest in people is a standard the sisters passed on not only to their own families, but also to thousands of students during their 40-year teaching careers," OBU stated in a news release. "Many young teachers have, in turn, passed these values on to their own students in honor of the twins. The ripple effect of the two ... teachers has reached countless lives."
As identical twins Sadie and Madie celebrated their 97th birthday in June, the sisters could look back on lives marked by service and care. After attending a one-room school for first through eighth grades in the Oklahoma Panhandle, they attended Texhoma High School. It was too far to walk to school, and the Depression made everything more difficult, so the girls lived with separate families in town while cooking, cleaning, doing laundry and caring for children to earn their keep.
Sadie and Madie graduated from high school as valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively. Because she was valedictorian, Sadie received a two-year scholarship to Oklahoma Baptist University -- but she would not go without Madie.
...
After Sadie completed her degree, she began teaching in Trousdale, Okla., to pay for Madie's tuition. The sisters graduated together in 1939.
SADIE GARDNER BLANTON
During her 10-year tenure at Trousdale, Sadie taught third and fourth grades, and ninth-grade English and world history. While there, she met her future husband, Fraser Blanton, on a blind date.
...
"You were always my favorite teacher during my first years at Trousdale," Murry Perkins wrote Sadie with greetings on her 94th birthday. A retired University of Chicago engineer, Perkins worked on the Mars "Rover" exploration instrument. "It's because of you and your sincere and serious approach to teaching that I am what I am today! I'm sure that things would be entirely different for me otherwise."
In 1947, Sadie moved with her husband to New Orleans, where they lived for the next 32 years. He would become a naval hero, Commander Blanton. Sadie attended graduate school at Tulane University and taught fourth grade for 30 years at New Orleans Academy, an elite boys' military school. She made a lasting impression on many people with her sparkling blue eyes and her listening ear.
...
In 1978, Sadie was named New Orleans Academy's Outstanding Teacher of the Year and the yearbook was dedicated to her. She is a lifetime member of Delta Kappa Gamma and Eastern Star. While in New Orleans, she was a Sunday School teacher for adults and teenagers for many years and active in Woman's Missionary Union. She also served 20 years as the Vacation Bible School director for Highland Baptist Church in Metairie, La.
After retirement in 1978, Sadie and Fraser returned to Oklahoma and settled in Shawnee. They were married for 45 years before his death in 1985. Sadie is a member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Shawnee.
...
Sadie and Madie's family members said Oklahoma Baptist University provided the opportunity for them to prepare for lives of service in their roles as educators, wives, mothers and Christian women -- and to encourage countless others in the same noble pursuits.
