North Carolina College for Negroes at Durham
A graduate of Darden High School in Wilson, North Carolina and the first in her family to attend college, she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Home Economics and became a devoted teacher, first at Pitt County Training School in Grimesland and later at Springfield High School in Wilson County. She also served for a period of time as Home Extension Agent for Wilson County.
Her career took her to Baltimore where she taught at Catonsville Junion High School. From there she moved to New York City and served as Dietician at Byrd S. Coler Hospital before becoming Head Dietician at Metropolitan Hospital.
She was an early pioneer in the cause of rights for women. The welfare of the family and the promotion of their education were among her most profound interests. No task was too difficult, no challenge was unanswerable, and no goal was unattainable for this woman of indomitable spirit.
