Woodville School Update
Black History Month brought some exciting news to the Woodville School. We learned that a budget appropriation to pay for part of the cost of our planned driveway and parking area was included in this year’s General Assembly budget. We are working with the Department of Historic Resources and Gloucester County to be able to use these funds once our site plan is approved by the County.
We also made an important new friend for the Woodville School.
Aviva Kemper, founder of the Ciesla Foundation and filmmaker of a wonderful documentary about Julius Rosenwald, graciously allowed us to share the documentary with our community.
Aviva also participated in a panel discussion about Rosenwald and Woodville. The panel was hosted by our very supportive partner, Gloucester County Public Schools, and moderated by Dr. Walter Clemons, Superintendent of Schools. More information about the film and panel can be found on our home page
Finally, we are very happy to welcome five new board members to the Woodville Rosenwald Foundation Board: Teri N. Redcross-Ali, Dianne Carter de Mayo, Warren Deal, LuAnn Nagel and Kevin Smith. Each of our new board members brings expertise, enthusiasm and commitment to telling the story of the Woodville/Rosenwald School and the history of African American education in Gloucester and beyond.
