Thames to address DAR on Monday



The service and sacrifice of the nation’s founders will be the focus of Dr. William Thames’ presentation for the Monday, April 8, meeting of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Boonesborough Chapter.

The program, at 2:30 p.m. in the fellowship hall of First Christian Church, Richmond, is open to interested community residents.  

A retired university administrator, Thames is a member of the Hereditary Order of the Descendants of Colonial Governors.  He is a descendant of the first English settler in South Carolina, Dr. Henry Woodward, and of South Carolina Colonial Governor Robert Gibbes.     

Before retiring in 2010, Thames served Eastern Kentucky University for 39 years as director of the College of Education Field Service and Professional Development Office. He also established and directed the EKU Southeast/SouthCentral Superintendents Cooperative, which involved up to 50 school superintendents and school districts in providing educational programs and training.

For more details, call Betsy Burch, chapter regent, at 624-8908.
