The Sadye Watson-Potter Scholarship Luncheon is dear to the hearts of the women of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Epsilon Zeta Chapter, and Atlanta Public Schools: Soror Watson-Potter was an educator at Booker T. Washington High School and Howard High School for 44 years. A petite lady with a mighty spirit she would introduce herself to her students by saying “I’m a little piece of leather, well put together!” She was revered as an advocate for children and families, which is evident by her founding the Y-Teen Program at the Phyllis Wheatley YWCA to encourage teenage girls to focus on academic achievement and prevent teenage pregnancy. Soror Watson-Potter was a fierce advocate for Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., and served as the first State Director of the sisterhood in the state of Georgia!
The highlight of the luncheon will be the introduction of the amazing and talented scholarship recipients. The theme of the event this year is “Honoring Our Past While Embracing Our Future through Scholarship, Service, and Sisterhood!” As we honor Soror Watson-Potter's legacy, we will be supporting our youth with scholarship and showcasing their talents.
The luncheon will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2018, at the Dennard Conference Center at Atlanta Technical College, noon-3 p.m. Atlanta Technical College is located at 1560 Metropolitan Pkwy SW, Atlanta, GA 30310.
We hope to see you there!
