This past weekend’s Unity Day designees were joined by a very special honoree who has dedicated over a half-century to the greater Huntington Community. The surprise presentation was reserved for Huntington Enrichment Center founder Dolores Thompson who has been a strong advocate and dedicated proponent of diversity, equality, and excellence in our region. Ms. Thompson has given tirelessly of her time and energy, serving nearly two decades as the president of the NAACP, Chairperson of the Dolan Center Health Advisory Board, and member of Leadership Huntington’s President’s Council. In addition, “Dee has been a passionate supporter of our South Huntington community and genuine friend to the school district team,” said Dr. Joseph Centamore in the district's current Weekly Newsletter. “Our Wildcat family is proud of Ms. Thompson, and join her beautiful children and grandchildren in wishing her the very best.”
