Education has always been important to the Moran family. From the time they were little they were attending Mrs. Evans School in Dresden TN and then as they became teenagers the boys (Jimmie and Harrell Moran) were off to a school in Elkton KY and then The Webb Bell Buckle School in of course, Bell Buckle, TN. The girls (Fannie, Ida, and Marion) attended Mrs. M.E. Clark's Select School for Young Ladies and Miss Price's School in Nashville, TN. They went on to attend Belmont College also located in Nashville. At the time they were attending, the ladies were housed in the Belmont Mansion which had been divided up into dormitory rooms.
