Legacy Lake

Legacy Lake was designed to be a lasting, visible tribute to the past and present First Ladies of Alabama A&M University. These women, who very often become unsung heroes, join the University family committed to using their influence, knowledge, and concern for the community to foster change and growth on the campus. 

It is only fitting then that they be recognized for their contributions and the legacies they leave behind.  This distinguished group of women includes:

  • Mrs. Maria Weeden Howard Councill
  • Mrs. Ida Councill Buchanan
  • Mrs. Susan Whitfield Parker
  • Mrs. Anne Quick Drake, Mrs. Ethel Williams Morrison
  • Mrs. Beatrice Mitchell Covington
  • Mrs. Earlene Ovletre Henson
  • Mrs. Voncile Pierce Gibson
  • Mrs. Abbiegail Hamilton Hugine
