Known as the "bulwark of the Achaeans", he was trained by the centaur Chiron (who had trained Ajax's father Telamon and Achilles's father Peleus and would later die of an accidental wound inflicted by Heracles, whom he was at the time training) at the same time as Achilles. Ajax, angry at what had happened, deliberately fell on his own sword and died. Eventually, Odysseus and Ajax manage to carry it from the battle and back to the ships. Ajax becomes furious about this and decides to kill them. At the end of the Trojan War and after Achilles' death, Ajax along with Odysseus fought against the Trojans to retrieve the body of the hero. Achilles is cremated, and his ashes are mixed with Patroclus '. On coming to his senses, he slew himself with the sword that he had received as a present from Hector. Ajax, (Latin), Greek Aias, byname Ajax the Lesser, in Greek legend, son of Oileus, king of Locris; he was said to be boastful, arrogant, and quarrelsome. The great warrior Achilleshas been killed in battle. He competed with the Greek hero Odysseus for the armour of Achilles but lost, which so enraged him that it caused his death. For his crime of dragging King Priam’s daughter Cassandra from the statue of the goddess Athena and violating her, he barely escaped being stoned to death by his Greek allies. He was described as fearless, strong and powerful but also with a very high level of combat intelligence. In Homer's Iliad he is described as of great stature, colossal frame and strongest of all the Achaeans. As for Achilles ' armor, made by Hephaestus himself, both Odysseus and Ajax claim it. According to a later story, Ajax’s disappointment drove him mad. Ajax commands his army wie… When Achilles dies from an arrow shot by Paris, there is a huge battle for the corpse. As the man who now can be considered the greatest Greek warrior, Ajax feels he should be given Achilles’ armor, but the two kings, Agamemnonand Menelaus, award it instead to Odysseus. During the competition, Ajax said that he should receive it for all of the great deeds that he performed during the war; Odysseus, better skilled at speaking, managed to convince the Greeks and was offered the armour. After burying him, the two wanted to claim Achilles' armour for themselves.

For over five years I have worked closely with Dr. Anderson in the conception and establishment of Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter Schools and to a lesser extent Pine Bluff and Capital City Lighthouse Charter Schools. None of those effort would have have come to pass without her commitment, strength and dedication to improving education of youngsters of our local community and state, as is well recognized by the local board, parents, and students who are the beneficiaries of her drive and talent.
President and Chief Executive Officer, Lighthouse Academies, Inc.
Dr. A, as we know her, served as key member of the Lighthouse leadership team for over six eyars. She is responsible for building our Arkansas region from nothing to a strong group of five schools. Dr. Anderson also supported Lighthouse's growth from a couple of schools in New York, to a network with over twenty schools in eight states. She provided leadership or supervised schools and regions across the network, but the Arkansas area is where her talents were truly evident.

From our first meeting, I was impressed with Dr. Anderson’s commitment to serving children in high need communities. She has exceptional communication and leadership skills. She is a team player. I relied on Dr. Anderson for advice and counsel on a wide range of organizational issues. The accomplishments of the team she lead are well known in Arkansas. Under her leadership, and with her direct involvement, the team she recruited developed a network of high performing charter schools in Arkansas/Oklahoma that now serve close to 2,000 students.
