Winborne Hamlin, English Teacher, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in education and volunteer service.
Ms. Hamlin prepared for her career by first attending The Graham School. She transitioned to Sweet Briar College, simultaneously studying and working as an English teacher from 1955 until 1958, when she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude. Following her graduation, she spent a short period as an English teacher for Eastern High School in Baltimore, Maryland. Ms. Hamlin continued her academic pursuits, and graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 1959 with a Master of Arts in teaching, accepting a position as an English teacher for Lancaster Middle and High Schools in South Carolina, where she remained until 1963. Additionally, from 1961 to 1963, she served as a teacher and director of the art program at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia. From 1973 to 1975, Ms. Hamlin served on the board of directors for St. Michael’s School, and from 1978 to 1979, she served as president of the University Park School Parent Teacher’s Association (PTA). In recognition of her achievements, she has received many awards, including the Acorn Award for the establishment of the University Park Library.
In addition to her educational work, Ms. Hamlin has been an active member of St. Michael and All Angels Church. She served as president of the Women of the Church and as president of the Parish Council. Ms. Hamlin served multiple times as a delegate to the Triennial Conventions of Episcopal Church, on the executive council for the Diocese of Dallas, and in the vestry for her church. As a lifelong educator and volunteer, Ms. Hamlin is most proud of helping tutor the son of a Vietnamese refugee, who had escaped from pirates with his father on his way to the United States. She helped get him a library card, took him to museums, and treated him like a son. Eventually, the boy’s mother and sister were able to come to the United States, and the boy moved away to California with his family. Years later, Ms. Hamlin was overjoyed to receive a letter from the boy, who had earned a master’s degree and was now engaged to be married. For her, seeing the impact she was able to have on the boy’s life was incredibly rewarding and fulfilling. As a testament to her experience and service, Ms. Hamlin has been featured in the eighth and ninth editions of Who’s Who in the World, the 20th edition and 21st edition of Who’s Who in the South and Southwest, and the fourth edition of Who’s Who in Religion.
