Clinton Machann and James W. Mendl and happened upon this on page 90:
"Studies of the public schools located in Lavaca County Czech
districts illustrate the extensive Czech involvement in community
schools throughout the period of this study. At least fifteen Lavaca
County schools can be described as "Czech." That is, Texas Czechs
founded them and predominated among students, teachers, and school
trustees through the years. The Vysehrad School, for example, was
founded in 1887. J. F. Kutach, Sr. donated the land for the site of
the original one-room building. A two-room building was constructed
Sorry, I don't have any more to offer, but thought some of you might
find this interesting.
