President Barack Obama presented a Presidential Citizens Medal in 2010 to our founder Myrtle Faye Rumph for her work at the center.

Another blast from 2011!

You'll always be family to us no matter where you are. We will always do our best to celebrate with you, cry with you, be there when we can.


We also want your support as volunteers and donors. We want you to visit the center to catch up and share your memories and feedback to help keep the legacy going.

Stay in touch!

Our first "Virtual 10-Year Reunion" was held on 10/29/21 for Wooten students, staff and other friends from 2010-2020. Join our mailing list for info on the next one! You will also receive our e-newsletter with family and community resources.
