The school at 240 Ocean Terrace will be named after long-time community activist, Geraldine Claytor. Claytor’s hard work is captured in a statement1 by her daughter Bennyta Thompson saying, “My mother was not looking for any notoriety; she served the P.T. Barnum community with love, a pure heart, and a passion to help others.” Although she did not seek personal recognition, the P.T. community honors her service and legacy by naming the new school Geraldine Claytor Magnet Academy.
