Jewell Simpson Houston was a native Houstonian a graduate of Booker T. Washington High School and Paul Quinn College. She received here Bachelor’s Degree in Science from Houston College for Negroes and began teaching in Aldine in 1951. She later earned a professional lifetime certification for high school instructor, principal, counselor and superintendent.

“We must be involved in the lives of our young people and help in shaping their lives,” Mrs. Houston said. “We have a great opportunity to do good and do things right. We must do our part because these young people have so much to offer a world ripe with opportunity for them to move forward.”
