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.
