Mrs. Thelma Boynton educated generations of Bledsoe County students and lived a life of learning herself. Boynton recently celebrated her 100th birthday with celebrations with her family and friends.
As an educator in Bledsoe County, Boynton was a trailblazer for sciences. Education runs deep in her family. All of her sisters and three of her aunts were educators, and all three of her sons have been educators at some point. Even some of her grandchildren are teachers.
