About


Seven Purposes

  • To unite women educators in a genuine spiritual fellowship.
  • To honor women who have given or who evidence potential for distinctive service in education.
  • To advance the professional interest and position of women in education.
  • To sponsor, support and initiate desirable educational legislation.
  • To endow scholarships to aid outstanding women educators.
  • To stimulate personal and professional growth of members.
  • To inform the members of current economic, social, political and educational issues.

We use projects and events to raise money, then distribute that money through our 501(c)(3) arm, BBEF (Beta Beta Education Foundation).  We support each other and have a wonderful time supporting our passions for education.
