New playground named in memory of beloved Rev. Maggie Howard
This playground is named in honor of Reverend Dr. Maggie Howard (1963 – 2020). Howard was born and raised in New York City and lived in the nearby Stapleton Houses. She received her associate degree in finance from the College of Staten Island, a bachelor’s degree in Theology from Boulden Seminary in Delaware, and also took doctoral studies. Howard was ordained in 1991 and was designated lead pastor of Stapleton A.M.E, the oldest African American church in Staten Island, in 2000.
Howard was known as a pillar of the community providing counseling and mentoring services, working with organizations such as FEMA’s Project Hope for Hurricane Sandy victims. Howard worked to better the neighborhood as a mediator in the Cease Fire Program, an NYPD initiative to prevent gang-related violence, Peer Recovery Coach, and a Citizens Police Academy graduate. She spread her inspirational message of education and social justice to Stapleton and around the world through her missionary work until she died in 2020.
