Mary Frances Early was the first African American to graduate from UGA. She joined AKA while a student at Clark Atlanta before entering graduate school at UGA joining Charlayne Hunter Gault (Delta) and Hamilton Holmes (Alpha) to integrate the University.
“"The proposed naming of the College of Education in honor of Mary Frances Early is a tribute not only to her trailblazing integration of UGA in the 1960s but also to her lifetime of accomplishment and service to others as a music educator,” said College of Education Dean Denise A. Spangler. “I am deeply honored because I spent my entire career in education, and I never dreamed that I would receive such an incredible recognition from the University of Georgia,” said Early.
