Coretta Scott King was the first recipient of the Woman of Achievement Award established by TWU president Shirley Chater. King visited TWU on April 14, 1998 and among the special guests for her visit was a group of young students from public schools in the area. Some of the young students gave verbal tributes to Mrs. King and her late husband.
