October 1st Celebration of Guatemalan Children's Day in Memory of Wynn Cherry
Friends of FUNDAL’s Guatemalan Children’s Day 2016 event [see flyer PDF] honors Dr. Wynn Cherry who served on its Board of Directors starting in 2011. She provided leadership as Chair of the Board from January 2014 until her unexpected death on December 22, 2015.
Wynn’s passion, creativity, dedication and long career in the field of education benefited many children and families both in North Carolina and Guatemala. As an educator at Broughton High School (Raleigh), Wynn traveled to Guatemala numerous times with groups of students. She also traveled there with her family to experience the richness and the realities of life there.
Wynn was an inspiration to all who knew her. To say that she is missed is an understatement. Wynn always wanted to celebrate Guatemalan Children’s Day!
