Lillian Seays’ Legacy: ONYX Founder Honored

The City of Orlando and District 6 Commissioner Samuel B. Ings honored Lillian B. Seays by dedicating the Memorial Middle School Media Center in her name. Seays worked at the school as its media specialist from 1970 to 1992. In her 28-year career as a media specialist, she also inspired students at Carver Junior High School and in the downtown Orlando Public Library.

Seays is the pioneer of Memorial’s morning announcements program. At her request, the school built a studio in the Media Center where professional media personalities would broadcast the news. Students at Memorial and students from Canada also broadcast the announcements.
