Art Maynor’s story

Upon his discharge from the Marine Corp he went to college and earned a degree in education.  His first assignment was teaching fifth grade, he went on to teach art in high school, and eventually taught some art classes through WEDU, the educational channel.  His wife gave him a banjo one year and he decided to take lessons at the Bluegrass Parlor; a Tom Henderson owned it at that time.
