Radiant, Sweet, and the epitome of Finer Womanhood at its best are just a few attributes to describe our fearless leader…

She matriculated to the University of Mississippi where she studied English Literature, graduating in 1989 with a Master of Arts degree. Her love for English, learning, and all things books doesn't stop there. In 2014, she graduated from the University of Tennessee Knoxville with a Master of Library and Information Science.
Mrs. Smith, a proud Memphis native, currently works with the City of Memphis at the Benjamin L. Hooks Library. She is married to Julian H. Smith and they have three adult children, Anastasia (Anna), Julian and Regina. She is a member of Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church.

For the past 34 years, she’s been devoted to upholding Zeta’s founding principles of Scholarship, Service, Finer Womanhood, and Sisterhood. In 1997, she joined the Astounding Alpha Eta Zeta Chapter where she’s served as Undergraduate Advisor (Rho Gamma Chapter), Youth Advisor (Pearlettes) for many years and has served on numerous committees and service projects. Presently, she serves as our chapter President and the State of TN Secretary.

We are also honored to have one of our very own members, Donna R. Williams, as our Tennessee State Director!
