PANTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS for Friday, February 22

Black History Month  Thelma Jean Mothershed Wair, born 1940, in Bloomburg, TX

Thelma Jean Mothershed Wair made history as a member of the Little Rock Nine, the African-American students involved in the desegregation of Little Rock Central High School in 1957. The world watched as they braved constant intimidation and threats from those who opposed desegregation of the formerly all-white high school. Mothershed was a junior when she entered Central. Despite the fact that she had a cardiac condition since birth, she had a near perfect record for attendance.
