My granny graduated from AU in 1961-1962 with her master’s in education. She served the students of Montgomery as a teacher, counselor, and finally district level leadership in charge of child nutrition. My granny was one of six children, she was the oldest, and through her hard work she helped put all of her brothers and sisters through school. She also served as an example to her children and grandchildren many of whom, including myself, hold multiple degrees from Auburn. My granny passed away in 2014 but her legacy lives on both in our family and as an alumnae of Auburn.
