Wanda L. Fowler Community Champion Award

At our 20th Anniversary Banquet, we will present the inaugural Wanda L. Fowler Community Champion Award to Rhonda Dodson, a science teacher at James F. Brynes High School.

Rhonda - along with students in the school's Interact Club - created the Byrnes Clothing Closet to provide re-purposed clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories for students who need them. The innovative project includes three on-campus stores - the Byrnes Boutique for young women; Rebel Racks for young men; and Rebel Reserve for formal attire. 

Rhonda is making a great impact on the lives of both students who need support and those who are volunteering their time to provide it. We are thrilled to name her as our very first Community Champion Award winner.
