Anna Lou Pickett

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our founder, scholar, colleague and friend, Anna Lou Pickett. We are grateful for her impact and the many victories due to Anna Lou’s relentless efforts on behalf of paraeducators and the students they serve. We find peace in knowing she is most assuredly organizing others in the great beyond. She taught us that to change policy and build infrastructure, "one must drip, drip, drip away" and never give up. Thank you Anna Lou for the life lessons that you have shared and that will continue to serve us well for years to come. Anna Lou's Obituary can be found here. There is an opportunity to leave messages for the family as well.
