In honor of Women’s History Month, we are highlighting just a FEW of the women of Knoxville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. who have been trailblazers in their field and community.
Today is National Girl Scout Day! March 12th commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization’s first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia.
DID YOU KNOW: Knoxville Alumnae Chapter charter member, Beulah Warren Sinclair, was the first Black Girl Scout camp director in Knoxville and served on the Girl Scout Council. Thank you for blazing trails, Soror Sinclair!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY: We celebrate the legacy of our dear past president, Dr. Lula Powell, as she turns 90 years young!
A retired educator, Dr. Powell was the longest-serving principal at Green Magnet Math and Science Academy. In 2015, Knoxville City Council voted to rename Town View Drive off Summit Hill Drive to “Lula Powell Drive.”
Her storied 42-year career in education as a teacher, librarian, and principal was also paired with her dedicated service to Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., where she served as president in 1963.
