Ada Mae Hannon

June 29, 1951 ~ April 10, 2022 (age 70)


Ada Mae Brunson Hannon was born to the late John Wesley and Lettie Lawrence Brunson in Saint Matthews, South Carolina in 1951. She attended both Guinyard Elementary and John Ford High Schools. At her alma mater, South Carolina State University, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Health Sciences and a Master of Education in Home Economics.

After graduation, Ada began her career as an Educator in 1977 in her hometown of Saint Matthews, SC. As an Educator with the Calhoun County Public School System, she served in many capacities, such as: 6th, 7th, & 8th Grade Careers and Home Economics Teacher; 3rd and 4th Grade Math and Science Teacher, and most notably the John Ford Middle School Faculty Sponsor for The National Beta Club (a role she served in for over 25 years). She would go on to retire from Calhoun County Public Schools in 2015.

Throughout her illustrious career, Ada achieved many accolades to include John Ford Middle School Teacher of the Year, Calhoun County Public School Teacher of the Year, the South Carolina Association of Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher of the Year, and the South Carolina State University Department of Family and Consumer Sciences Outstanding Alumni Award.

Ada loved traveling the US and would collect coffee cups from each of the places that she visited. She also had a great affinity for arts and crafts, thus she collected many African American dolls and porcelain figurines. Moreover, Ada loved to garden, planting assortments of flowers and shrubs at her home in which she loved dearly.
