Bettie Meshack Mann Dedication at Lee Elementary

Thursday, December 8th has been officially declared "Bettie Meshack Mann" day in the City of Austin. Mrs. Mann is such a beautiful person with a big, loving heart. I was honored to spend so much time with her, following her around for a whole week and taking photos. Her life is so full and dynamic.

"We're celebrating Mrs. Mann at 6 p.m. with a program (speakers include Mrs. Mann herself, Vice President of the AISD Board of Trustees Paul Saldaña, and former Mayor Pro Tem Sheryl Cole, among others), a reception, and the unveiling of "The Gift," Cindy Elizabeth's extraordinary portrait of Mrs. Mann.

"All are welcome! Russell Lee Elementary, 3308 Hampton Road." --Nancy Mims
