(1912 – 1980)
Louvenia Alexander Lee was born on April 9, 1912, in Tuskegee, Alabama. And that is where she gained her entire education. From Tuskegee Institute she received her high school diploma and her B.S. degree.
For many years Mrs. Lee taught school, both elementary and high school. In Harmony, Alabama, she was a vocational education teacher for Pike County High School.
In 1955, Autauga County gained the services of Mrs. Lee. She was named Home Demonstration Agent and grew to love the clients who sought her advice. Mrs. Lee became Extension Home Agent in 1965 and seven years later was promoted to Associate County Extension Chairman. She served in that capacity until she retired in 1977.
While promoting Extension programs and projects, Mrs. Lee was able to share her knowledge and skills. She was particularly known for the participation she had in her home economics programs in Autauga County. The homemakers and 4-H’ers grew to appreciate the sincere interest Mrs. Lee showed in their efforts.
In tribute to her achievements, the name Louvenia A. Lee is inscribed on the dedicatory plaque of the Extension Memorial Chapel.
