Tree dedicated in memory of outstanding local educator

Representatives of the Magnolia High School Alumni Association (MHSAA), the Thomas County-Thomasville Retired Teachers Association and Thomas University came together Tuesday, Feb. 28, on TU’s Magnolia Campus to rededicate a tree in honor of the late Gladys Chappelle, for whom Chappelle Elementary School was named. That school was located on what is now TU’s Magnolia Campus. Before the renovation of the Magnolia Campus, there had been a tree that was dedicated to Chappelle. The monument from that tree was housed in the Magnolia Conference Room inside the Student Life Center. Now it is in place beneath a newly planted drake elm donated by NeSmith Nursery. Participating in the dedication ceremony are (from left) Roger Walker, President of MHSAA; Judy Ament of the Thomas County-Thomasville Retired Teachers Association; Dr. Francena Cummings of MHSAA; TU President Dr. Andy Sheppard; Dr. Janice Conner of MHSAA; and Debra Bryant of the Thomas County-Thomasville Retired Teachers Association.
