Former Savannah City Council member, educator, and mentor Gwendolyn P. Goodman passed away last month, but her memory lives on. The science wing of Johnson High School will be renamed Gwendolyn Goodman Hall. Goodman served as a biology teacher and principal at Johnson.
Her former coworkers say this is a wonderful way to keep her memory alive. "There will be a plaque with her picture as kids go to class they will look down that wing, they'll see her name and remember her as an outstanding educator," said Roosevelt Coleman, the school's athletic director.
Gwendolyn Goodman Hall will be officially dedicated on April 22.
