Our Namesake, Emma Lee Broady

Emma Lee Broady’s educational journey was rooted in San Antonio, Texas.  She graduated from Phyllis Wheatley High School May 31, 1945.  After beginning her post secondary studies at St. Phillip’s College, Mrs. Broady attended Prairie View A&M and she graduated on May 21, 1950 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Home Economics.  For 22 years she continued to impact the lives of young people while teaching at Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Mrs. Broady had an unwavering faith in God and in the value of education.  She believed that everyone could achieve.  The School’s motto, “It’s Never Too Late To Graduate” was a theme she exemplified to the many people who crossed her path.  Though she has gone to be with our Lord, Mrs. Broady would be delighted to know that her passion for the success of others continues to live on through the school which bears her name. We salute the life of this inspiring black woman who through faith and dedication blazed the trail for others to follow.
