Amy Sims, Age 41

Amy Sims served as a UFT chapter leader at City College Academy of the Arts in Manhattan for seven years. She was an empowering presence at her school, showing her colleagues what a strong, fearless and capable woman she was and inspiring her students to be their best selves no matter what. She dispensed wisdom with wit and sarcasm and had an exceptional ability to motivate her students to do their very best. Her colleagues honor her memory with a scholarship for deserving students, which has awarded four $1,000 scholarships in Amy's name since 2015. She is survived by her mother, Elizabeth Sims, who lives in Florida.
