Violet King

According to student Jaspreet Singh -

She became the motivation for the Black community especially for Black women to move forward in their life by eliminating discrimination and racism to earn an education. She proved that if you have courage and dedication you can achieve anything you want no matter from which community you belong. She also earned respect in her community and became a woman role model for the upcoming generations and set an example for women with her achievements.
