Our program Sunday, May 3, 2009, attracted a large group to the new Auditorium at Camden High School. Guest speakers included Mather graduates Congressman Jim Clyburn and Dr. Ernestine Adams, with Dr. Harvey S. Teal.
On a part of the old campus, a memorial to Mather is a familiar site on Campbell Street, Camden, a location on the State Archives’ list of African-American Historical Sites. The school took root from missionary efforts to educate children of former slaves. More Mather information is on the Boylan-Haven-Mather Academy Alumni Association webpage.
