Way Cool Sunday School: The Gift of Building a Better World (Black History Month), The Magnificent Dr. Gladys Mae West. We are excited to be lifting up the life of Dr. Gladys Mae West for Black History Month. Dr. West is a mathematician whose talent gave us GPS (Global Positioning System) without which we would still be using those old paper maps and would also be getting lost a lot more often!
