In the spirit of strong (and smart) women who have been an influence in our lives and to celebrate my daughter's upcoming graduation from the University of Tennessee at Martin, we have created the Martin Margaret collection. Of course, "Margaret" is Dr. Margaret Perry.
In 1986 Dr. Perry was named Chancellor of the University of Tennessee at Martin, the first woman to head a four-year institution of public higher education in the state of Tennessee. Early in 2020, I had the opportunity to connect with Dr. Perry at a Women's Conference when I was set up to market our products. She stopped by, made several purchases and when she realized I was a graduate of UTM, made it a point to encourage me in what I was doing as a social entrepreneur.
With this collection that features the colors of orange, blue and white we say "Go Skyhawks"!
