Ruth Elizabeth Gunn was born in Key West, FL on November 6th, 1926. She attended Frederick Douglass High School and received a Bachelors degree from Oakwood College in 1951. Ruth Gunn spent the rest of her life dedicating herself to the education of the children of Key West. If any child or family was in need, Ruth Gunn was there with food, clothing, shelter, and the gift of literacy, even at 91 years young. Mrs. Gunn remains close to all of our hearts as we continue our work in her name.
As Mrs. Gunn would say: "Don't be sorry, be different!"
