Minnie Lee Brown (Ma’Dear) has always been a leader and her examples of educational progress is a way to lead our lives as we continue to conquer what life lies ahead. Minnie Lee Brown believed as long as you use your intelligence and brain power you can conquer the world . She gave so much love to her students and she cared for each child, as if they were all “A+ Scholars” and we could not ask for more.
Minnie Lee Brown (Ma’Dear) attended Stanton High School, Florida Memorial College and Florida A&M University Graduate School where she received her Master of Education Degree in 1967. She was employed by the Jacksonville School District for more than 38 years. She was a very spiritual and soft-spoken woman that never forced her beliefs in God on you, but through the tone of her voice, her kindness, her patience, her tolerance, her smile, and most of all her wisdom, she unknowingly touched the hearts and lives of many.
I am honored to say Minnie Lee Brown is my Grandmother and although she is Resting in Peace, DEM KIDZ INC will strive to ensure our youth have the tools, skills, and resources needed to pursue greatness and reach their full potential, regardless of their zip code, background, or ethnicity. We remain committed to giving youth the opportunity to feel safe, heard, empowered and to know they have a voice. Through Minnie Lee Brown’s Literacy Project we encourage students to stand up for what is right. As an organization, DEM KIDZ INC is built on love, compassion, and service for every youth we have the privilege of serving. Now more than ever, that commitment from DEM KIDZ INC continues.
