Fearless Females:  Three Generations Of College Educated Ladies --How Did I Get Here? My Amazing Genealogy Journey



Each of these three lovely ladies attended college.

From left to right:  

Great Grandma --Ophelia Jones Bryant --A&T College The Negro Agricultural and Technical College in Greensboro, NC.

Grandmother --Mary Bryant Harrison Horton --Queens College
(She gets extra points in my book because she earned her degree when she was in her 60's.)

Mom --Hofstra University

I did my part in continuing the tradition and received my degree in 1994 from Binghamton University. Now it's up to my daughter to keep it going.
