A Tribute to the Last Active Founding Board Member Sarah Wilson Alumni & Friends of Semmes School Inc. February 21,1937-August 11, 2023
Sarah Phelps Wilson grew up in Semmes, where her mother started the first school cafeteria at Semmes High School. She married her husband Earl in Semmes First Baptist Church 55 years ago, and today lives with him on the same property where she lived as a child.
Though not flashy or attention-seeking with her work, she’s nevertheless a leader: She is a charter member and vice president of Alumni and Friends of Semmes School; the person who oversees the rental and upkeep of Malone Chapel at Semmes Heritage Park; a worker and faithful member of her church and a supervisor during elections at the voting site at Semmes Community Center.
