VICKSBURG, Miss. — For more than 40 years, Gwendolyn Yates affected lives in a positive manner as an educator.
Her saying “great teachers beget great teachers” is her way of giving back to former instructors who set her down a path of educational service.
Yates was awarded with the 2015 NAACP Community Service Award on Dec. 27. She was nominated by Walter Sheriff and John Shorter, president of the local chapter presented her with the award at Standfield New Life Christian Church.
