CHS grad shines in land of the sun
Thelda Williams a veteran of Phoenix city government
As an eighth-grader at Creston Junior High, Thelda (Bender) Williams was surprised to win a special award.
“I won the ‘I Dare You Award,’ which said to the recipient — I dare you to go do something extraordinary with your life,” Williams said.
The 1959 Creston High School graduate did just that. She is serving the second of two stints as a member of the Phoenix, Ariz., City Council. In 1994, she was elected by the council to serve as interim mayor of the city of nearly 2 million residents after the resignation of Mayor Paul Johnson.
