Here is the photo of Cynthia Oates that will go on the Howard High School’s Wall of Fame. Cynthia is being honored for many accomplishments. For 30 years she taught elementary school children, first in Wilmington and then, after desegregation in 1975, in the Red Clay School District, where she also served as a Student Relations Specialist. Cynthia also served for 13 years on the board of the Christina School District, helping set education policy. She also has served on the boards of many social service agencies including the first Wilmington River Front Development board and on the Foster Care Review Board. Cynthia became a member of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in 1951, and became a member of SsAM when St. Matthew’s consolidated with St. Andrew’s in 1996. Cynthia’s award ceremony in the Howard High School Auditorium is set for Thursday, March 30, 2017, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
