The Legacy of A Lady


DECATUR- Honoring the life of a district 61 educator with permanent bench at Eisenhower High School.
    Sheryl Turnbo and the EHS class of 1985 wanted to do something in honor of the late Ida Brooks. Turnbo said, "she left a legacy and she might of been hard but it was worth it cause a lot of us wouldn't be where we were if it wasn't for some of the stuff she told us and she left a lot of love."
Ms. Brooks was known for her tough love but always supportive presence in the school.
1985 graduate Tracey Nugent said, "She was apart of Eisenhower that's what we remember."
The class celebrated their 30th anniversary and honored one of their favorite educators.
The bench is located in the front of the building at Eisenhower High School.
