My Truth: Happy 100th birthday to Mrs. Kathryn Mitchell

Born July 1, 1921

The Truth is that some people are going to live strong and long; some will live lives that are impactful and of note. Still others are going to merely exist.

No one is doubting the breadth and depth of the life of Mrs. Kathryn Mitchell. She has been of benefit to society for 100 years and is still going strong as she celebrates her very special birthday on July 1, 1921!

Last month at their monthly meeting, members of the South Dallas Business and Professional Women’s Club (SDBPWC) celebrated her birthday with their charter member, as they showered her with love.

A member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., the Parent Teachers Association and SDBPWC; Mrs. Mitchell was born in Tyler, Texas and attended Texas College before pursuing her masters degree at Texas Southern University.

A long-time educator; the elementary school teacher, who made her mark in the classroom and the civil rights movement, started out teaching at C.F. Carr Elementary.

There’s so much more that can be said about this trailblazer. Hers is a story of triumph and resilience.

Today we salute her and the work she has done. Her legacy is definitely intact and her life is an example for others to follow!
