Rosalynn Carter
Founder and Inspiration 

Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter has worked for more than four decades to improve the quality of life for people around the world. Today, she is a leading voice for mental health and human rights. 

We are grateful to Mrs. Carter and the other founding members for their inspiration and dedication to Georgia's history, specifically the consistent reminder of Georgia's women of history. Together with Mrs. Carter, Robert Ackerman, Frank Jones, Valeria Murphey, Nancy Anderson, Neva Fickling, Eleanor Lane and Colleen Nunn worked tirelessly from 1988-1992 to create Georgia Women of Achievement.
