Annie C. Broughton Adams '18
Oldest Alumni Honored -
The oldest living graduate of the Southern Industrial Institute, Annie Broughton Clapp Adams, SII Class of 1918, celebrated her l00th birthday on June 27, 2002, at her home in Greensboro, North Carolina.
At her birthday celebration, Mrs. Dorothy Moore, executive secretary of the SII/LWMA Alumni Association presented a resolution honoring her birthday. The resolution was given on behalf of the Alumni board of directors, officers, and membership.
Mrs. Adams has always been a devoted supporter of the school. She lived most of her younger years as both a student and resident at the Southern Industrial Institute, which later became Lyman Ward Military Academy. She was a close friend of the Lyman Ward family as well as other families who lived in Camp Hill. "When Dr. Ward spoke, we jumped. There were no ifs, or buts about it," said Mrs. Adams. "He was a second father to me. I loved him that much. You always knew where you stood with him. He taught me that life was too short."
Her son, who himself is 75 years old stated, "When my mother spoke, we jumped." Obviously, Mrs. Adams learned the power of speech from Dr. Ward!
