Following graduation, she was employed by Nashville Metro Schools as a teacher and assistant to the principal at Howard High School where she remained for 40 years until it closed. In 1958 she received a Master’s degree from Peabody College. Known as “Miss Ross” to generations of students at Howard, she was delighted when they recognized her.
