A life fulfilled - Dr. Lillian Parker Wright, an example of high achievement

Throughout her life, Dr. Lillian Parker Wright has always traveled along the road of academia. Now a retired professor and administrator from Norfolk State University, Dr. Wright continues to inspire everyone around her, including her constituents on the Norfolk Public Schools School Board. Her humble beginnings during the era of segregation while attending the less than favorable environment associated with the King George Training School [KGTS] did not discourage her from her professional destiny-it made her stronger. "We knew what we had, and we made the best of what we had," Dr. Wright said. "I felt that succeeding in education would make it possible to do better." Dr. Wright not only graduated with a bachelor's degree in home economics from Virginia State University, but she was the first KGTS graduate to return to King George as an educator at her high school alma mater, whose name had changed to Ralph Bunche High School. She later received a Masters Degree from Columbia University Teachers College and a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland.

"Home economics prepared students for the world," Dr. Wright said.
