Carolyn Cannaday

Carolyn was born and raised in Hawkins, where she loved playing make-believe outside with her two brothers and sister, was very active in school band, and played piano and organ for her church. She graduated from Baylor University in 1960 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English
and education and taught English for several years in Irving, developing a curriculum for gifted and talented students.

After marrying Henry, Carolyn joined him in Winnsboro and worked tirelessly as a phenomenal mother to Laura and John while also managing Henry’s dental practice for many years. While serving on the school board, she was instrumental in the bond approval and construction of the
new elementary school. For 20 years, she was an active member of The Standard Club of Winnsboro, including 2 years as president, and was a member of First Baptist Church.

Carolyn was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and aunt. She was a talented artist who enjoyed painting, playing the piano and sharing those talents with her friends and family. Her love of teaching extended throughout all facets of her life, from her work with the school board
to improving education, but mostly through sharing her gift of teaching with her family in all that she did.
