Shirley Thompson, Beloved Citizen, Dies

Shirley Thompson, well loved local citizen, passed Friday, according to the January 31, 2014 Durham Friday Update.  Shirley served on the ORCSD school board, including as chair, in the mid-2000s.   But that was just one of a long list of elected and volunteer service to which Shirley Thompson selflessly dedicated her life.  I'm sure I speak for many when I thank Shirley for all the great things she's done for the town and the district, and for her wonderful example of how to live.

At the school board meeting on December 18, 2013 Shirley announced  that she and her daughter have given a "sizable check" to the Track Fund.  I was lucky to be there, but you can watch it here:
