Our story

Throughout her life, Beverly Ann Steed displayed a thirst for knowledge and a fearless spirit that were unmatched. She was the first African American to integrate Whitehall Elementary School and a first-generation college student at Lane College, both schools in Jackson, TN. At Strayer University in Washington, DC, Beverly completed two master's degrees in Education Management and Educational Leadership. She culminated her graduation with Summa Cum Laude accolades and went on to add a publication to the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. During her 26 years as an elementary and middle school teacher, Ms. Steed enthusiastically introduced her students to the world outside the classroom. This was evident in her teaching of debate and chess during her tenure within Atlanta Public Schools. She always made sure each of her students (no matter how young) were motivated to attend a college or university. Ms. Steed always reminded her students that, “high school is not the end, only the beginning”.

Our goal

This fundraiser will support the Beverly Ann Steed Memorial Scholarship, which will provide financial assistance for high school seniors in Tennessee who are looking to pursue a degree at a 4 year university.
