NATIONAL CHICKEN LADY DAY
National Chicken Lady Day on November 4th annually honors Dr. Marthenia “Tina” Dupree.
For 12 years, Dr. Dupree worked for the second-largest chicken restaurant in the world as the Director of Community Relations and Training. She was widely known due to her work in the community. During this time and through her work with the community and the people she helped, Dr. Dupree became known as “The Chicken Lady.”
Dr. Dupree led numerous efforts to improve education in her community. She provided training and certification that led to business opportunities to many in her area. She not only led by example, but she enhanced the lives of those around her.
HOW TO OBSERVE CHICKEN LADY DAY
