On May 7, the birthday of Knoxville's
Lizzie Crozier French, the East Tennessee Women's Leadership
Council announced that Tennessee Supreme Court Justice and
Madisonville native Sharon Lee will receive the Lizzie Crozier French
Women's Leadership Award at the June 14 Summit.
Crozier French is noted for several
firsts in her fight for women's suffrage, including being the first
woman to address the Tennessee Bar Association and the Tennessee
General Assembly, and the first to run for Knoxville City Council.
The winner of this year's leadership award named in her honor is
also a ground breaker.
