Webster, Clemmie

Clemmie (Jackson) Webster was born in Gadsden, Tennessee in 1925, and two years later the family moved to Decatur, Illinois as part of the great migration of southern blacks to northern cities. She graduated from Decatur High School in 1942 and attended the University of Louisville for the next two years, where she joined the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. She earned a Bachelors Degree in Education from Sangamon State University in the 1970s. Webster, as a charter member of the Springfield Decatur Area Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, has been an active member of the chapter since its inception.
