Members of the Oprah Winfrey Boys & Girls Club community gathered Monday for a luncheon honoring Ebonnie Wynn for 14 years of service to the club.
Wynn “had hundreds of students that she cared for and showed true love for all of them. She made sure they had hot meals and gave them experiences they never would have had,” said CEO Ron Thornton.
Iretis Mallett said Wynn gave much more than her title would indicate.
“She has the passion,” she said. “She came in as food service manager and she did so much more.”
Wynn, who is leaving her position at the club to go to college to study children’s education, said the club certainly has not seen the last of her, despite her resignation from her current position.
“I’ll keep coming in every other Tuesday and Thursday. I love these children. We’re here to serve,” she said. “If you need me, I’ll just be a phone call away.”
