Margaret Voorhees

Family of Margaret Voorhees

In 1966 Margaret Voorhees was single with three young children in San Francisco. The Scholarship For Single Women With Children helped her return to SF State University for her Special Education Teacher’s Credential. In her retirement she continued to share her love of reading and English. Her passion was helping people that society had left behind. She taught immigrants to speak English. She read to the paralyzed who could not hold their own book. She supported the underdog, and she believed that everyone, with support, could exceed expectations; including their own.
