Harriet Powers (1837 - 1910) is one of three women to be inducted into the Georgia Women of Achievement Hall of Fame! The 18th annual induction ceremony takes place this Thursday, March 12, 2009 at Wesleyan College in Macon, GA.
Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter first suggested the idea of honoring the history and contributions of Georgia women in 1988. Soon what would become the Georgia Women of Achievement, Inc. was formed with the goals of: publicizing the accomplishments of GA women, encouraging research in this area, and providing information on such role models for Georgia young people.
Best wishes on a lovely ceremony - hope there are a few sistah quilters in the audience as the crowd honors Sistah Quilter Harriet Powers. Enjoy!
