COLUMBIA – The Beulah Ralph Memorial Committee has begun meeting to organize a dedication to the well-known community leader.
Ralph, who died on Nov. 17,was known as an advocate for educational equality. She retired in 2005 after working for the Columbia Public Schools for 58 years.
Her daughter, Monica Naylor, is working hard to continue her mother's efforts.
"Hopefully it will give people an opportunity to pay their respects," Naylor said.
Bridging the ties between the Douglass Park area and the community was a vision true to Ralph.
"That's what mother was about," Naylor said.
Naylor said Columbia Parks and Recreation is working on the plaque for the memorial, which will be placed outside Douglass High School. It is expected to be revealed in the spring
