1st Founder’s Day Celebration 2014

Fannie C. Williams, b. March 23, 1882, Biloxi, MS – d. June 12, 1980, New Orleans, LA

Our 1st Founder’s Day Celebration, March 21st, was a tribute to our namesake–Fannie C. Williams.

Williams was an exceptional educator during the era of segregation in the south. She pursued the best educational practices for the thousands of African American students under her care. For 33 years she served as a classroom teacher and administrator primarily at Valena C. Jones Elementary School in New Orleans’s 7th Ward.

Her legacy of success and caring is a tradition that we strive to continue at FCWCS. We will forever make Ms. Williams’s birthday an extraordinary day in memory of an extraordinary educator.
