William Mayo (1862 – 1931) The nineteen year old Cincinnatian, William Mayo became the first principal for the Frankfort Clinton Street School for African-Americans in 1882. He worked hard to create educational opportunities for blacks. The Mayo-Underwood High School was named in part in his honor. One of his greatest successes was the establishment of the State Normal School for Colored Persons in 1886, now Kentucky State University.
