Today we’re remembering the extraordinary life of Ms. Renae Armstrong. She grew up in Blackshear, GA during a time where schools, businesses and life was racially segregated. From a young age, she confronted injustice in her community and was taught by her family to love and care for others. Ms. Renae worked as a school teacher helping children to learn to read and impacted the lives of many young people.
Ms. Renae was a dedicated and faithful leader in Greater Grant AME’s justice ministry and an integral part of the ICARE organization. She engaged dozens and dozens of people to join the effort to ensure justice for youth, incarcerated people and residents in her community. She served on what is now ICARE’s Youth committee to make the education system better, helping keep thousands of young people in school and making sure they were taught to read.
Our ICARE community will miss Ms. Renae for her dedication to justice, kindness and bright spirit. Our sincere condolences to her family and Greater Grant Memorial AME. ... See MoreSee Less
