Naidyne Brown Bridwell
Naidyne Brown Bridwell was a familiar figure at CAMWS meetings for as long as any of us can remember. Born in Kentucky in 1924, she received her B.A. summa cum laude from Georgetown College in Georgetown, Kentucky, and taught at John Hersey High School in Illinois for nearly four decades. She retired from high-school teaching in 1984 when she moved to Denver with her husband Bill (Wilburn F.), who died in 1995. At Regis University she was one of the most energetic and effective state vice-presidents in CAMWS. Her regional newsletter set a standard for all. For these and her lifetime dedication to teaching she received many awards, including a CAMWSovatio in 1995. When she died on September 24, 2007, the classical world lost one of its most dedicated teachers and ardent supporters.
