Teach Your Students About Georgia Women of Achievement This Month

During March, Women’s History Month, students tend to focus on well known female figures like Margaret Mitchell. Here’s a chance to teach your students about the not very well known Georgia women of achievement.

Great women like Nina Anderson Pape. She established the Pape school in Savannah, a college preparatory institution.

Conservationist Jane Hurt Yarn is another woman worth studying. She notably helped to protect the marshes and barrier reefs of Georgia.

You and your students can find a treasure trove of stories about smart, amazing women from this state by checking out the Georgia Women of Achievement Honorees page.

We produced several of these profiles and they are included in our Georgia Stories collection. Check them out and tell us what you think.
