Abstract:

Educator and civic activist Lois Martin was born on September 23, 1928 in Boca Raton, Florida. Originally from Georgia, her family relocated to Boca Raton several years before Martin was born. After graduating in 1946 from Carver High School in Delray Beach, Florida, Martin went on to earn an A.A degree from Florida Normal College and a B.S. degree from Florida A&M College in 1950 before beginning to pursue graduate studies at Boston College. Martin returned to Boca Raton and taught math for nearly forty years at Carver High School, Booker T. Washington High School and Carver Middle School. Her influence was not limited to the classroom. She was an active member of her community. The Lois Martin Community Center served the underprivileged communities of Boca Raton with a variety of services for children and teens, including tutoring and after school programs. She acted as secretary to Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.
