All About Evelyn Williams
Transcript of All About Evelyn Williams
I loved learning and took courses at Inter-American University and Hampton University before earning my bachelor's degree in elementary education in 1961 and my master's degree in supervision and administration of elementary schools in 1964 from New York University.
I began teaching much earlier, however, starting my career in 1931 at the Diamond Rural Elementary School- the same school I attended as a child. During my career, I thought or served as principal of many St. Croix schools. I worked in the Virgin Islands publicschool system for more than four decades and influenced a generation of students and colleagues.
Gov. John De Jongh Jr.
"Mrs. Williams was born before the Virgin Islands was part of America, and her career was dedicated to uplifting the territory through education and passing on the heighest values of our people. Her accomplishments were many, and her legacy can be measured by the thousands of men and women she educated over her long career. Some were her students; other were notable educators, who learned their craft under her leadership in the Department of Education and went on to serve this territory so well themselves," Gov. John De Jongh Jr. said in a statement
