In honor of Women’s History Month, Dallas Women’s Foundation highlights local women from the 1800s to now, who have made a lasting and powerful impact on our state, our nation and the world.
One Response to “Women Making History in Texas”
Might I suggest an outstanding woman, Dr. Annie Webb Blanton, first woman who served as superintendent of Texas School Board. She founded Delta Kappa Gamma Society of Key Women Educators in 1929 in Austin. From the original 12 Texas founders, the organization grew to be in all 50 United States and 17 countries world wide. The headquarters are still in Austin, TX, and the Society has as its mission Promoting professional and personal growth for women educators and excellence in education. DKG works with the Fulbright Foundation to award 30 women educators from third world countries to pursue higher degrees in any country in which DKG has an organization. The USA and Canada receive the most requests. Individual chapters and state organizations, along with the international organization also award many scholarships and grants to women educators. http://www.dkg.org
