Mary E Demps was born in Quitman, Georgia, the youngest girl of a family of six children. She had a love for education her entire young life and moved to New Your City in the late 1960s to pursue post-secondary education in New York City. Ms. Demps obtained a Bachelors's and Master's degree in Reading and Education with a minor in Spanish. Mary Demps spoke fluent Spanish and spent the next 30 years teaching students with special needs of all ages and backgrounds within the New York City and Miami Dade County school systems. Ms. Demps was very passionate about education and worked hard to ensure that her students received the best education possible many times by using her own funds to provide them with the tools that they needed. Mary Demps was instrumental in our company President attending Fisk University an HBCU located in Nashville, Tennessee. It was her passion regarding education that led to several more members in the family attending Fisk University and other historical HBCU throughout the United States.
