MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A woman who dedicated much of her life to helping students in Milwaukee received a special tribute Friday, Dec. 10. The tribute for Joyce Hall be around for a long, long time.
The dedication was held at George Washington Carver Academy, a school located at 1st and Brown on Milwaukee's near north side. They're renaming the building for Joyce Hall, and for good reason.
Hall spent 30 years as a reading teacher in the Milwaukee Public Schools system. She retired in 1994, but that was hardly the end of her service to the students, as MPS Superintendent Dr. Keith Posley pointed out.
"Immediately after retirement she started tutoring here and that's when I started to see her on the scene, in the hallway, working with young people, table after table after table, young people going and learning how to read. Thank you. Thank you," said Dr. Posley.
Joyce Hall is 90 years old, and she was able to spend some time at Friday's dedication ceremony. A great tribute to one of the citys' unsung heroes.
