CANDLES OF JOYS AND CONCERNS

Gladys Unger

This candle celebrates the life of Thelma Burns. Miss Burns was Belmont’s METCO director in the 1990’s. During her tenure she nurtured the Boston students and provided opportunities for Belmont families to connect with them. Those ties remain strain today. After retiring from Belmont, Thelma became a full time activist for underserved communities in Boston. The extent of her contributions was lauded by Ayana Presley and Michelle Wu who spoke at the funeral.
