Evelyn Stewart

Evelyn Stewart taught mathematics at South High from 1953 until 1991, taking a 10 year break in the middle to devote her efforts to her growing family, but her time in the classroom doesn’t come close to capturing all she has done for the South High community.

Some people choose to be involved in activities in which one cannot help but notice them – not the case with Evelyn. She has given back to our community quietly, but for so long and in so many ways that we recognize her for demonstrating so vividly the spirit of giving that makes our little corner of the world such a wonderful place.

An advisor, a chaperone, a Girl Scout leader, she has touched so many lives. When the SGF Booster Club needed people to step up, Evelyn sewed banners by hand, worked the snack bar for many events, and even provided the concession stand in the form of her motor home. Numerous team banquets every year – no problem, Evelyn would make sure they were ready to go.

Many Stewart Awards are provided by Evelyn to this day to South High students, including the National Honor Society Medallions worn by students at graduation, the Stewart Math Award and the SGF Senior Awards in nine sports.

From the first South High Marathon Dance, and continuing for 25 years, Evelyn took on the task of feeding our dancers. Rarely able to see the dance, and out of sight of the community, Evelyn was integral in her role helping SHMD grow and become an event that has no equal.

Evelyn and her late husband Richard are the first husband and wife to be enshrined in the Bulldog Pride Hall of Fame. Together, they raised three children, Sandra, Timothy and Jeffery. She is grandmother to Matthew, Mark and Peter, and great-grandmother to Kaleigh and Lauren.

We honor Evelyn with a most deserved place in the Bulldog Pride Hall of Fame.
