Celebrating the life of Dr. Vida M Gaynor, Ph.D.

Dr. Vida M. Gaynor, Ph.D., beloved Elder, passed Sunday, October 23, 2011 in Jackson, MS.  Dr. Gaynor served on the founding Algebra Project Board of Directors in 1991 as the organization incorporated that year; many may remember her participation in the early national Algebra Project meetings of the project in the ‘90s.  She provided key encouragement at the inception of the New York City Algebra Project (in Brooklyn) in 1993, as well as for the genesis of the Baltimore Algebra Project and for the Young People’s Project in the mid-1990s. Dr. Joan Wynne of Florida International University recalled her important “Life Skills” counseling with AP and YPP students in Mississippi and Miami in recent years. In gratitude for Dr. Vida’s strong encouragement, strategic support, and grace, we share warm condolences with the Gaynor family, and Peace and Love to All.
