Educators Who Stand on the Foundation of Service Leadership

As the nation’s oldest and most renowned historically Black college for women, Spelman College’s fundamental foundation is to educate women and develop educators. From elementary to higher education, Spelman has cultivated education leaders who serve the world. In the introduction of the College’s 100th anniversary book, "Spelman: a centennial celebration 1881-1981," Beverly Guy-Sheftall references a journalist’s “assertion” made during the College’s 50th anniversary: “No history of women’s education in America would be complete without the story of Spelman.”

Spelman alumna Brittany K. KempBrittany K. Kemp, Ed.S., CCC-SLP, C’2007, is a nationally certified and state licensed speech-language pathologist. She is an Atlanta native whose passion to serve others began at an early age when she began attending therapy sessions with her father, who suffered a mini stroke. She was able to observe and witness his speech intelligibility vastly improve. Through this experience, she discovered the values of patience, determination and dedication.

After graduating from Spelman with a degree in child development, Kemp earned her master’s degree in communication sciences and disorders (speech-language pathology) in 2014 from the University of West Georgia in Carrollton, Georgia, and her education specialist degree in special education with a concentration in speech-language pathology from Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia.

Her current focus remains on pediatric and school-age populations. Currently, she is the founder and owner of Babbling Bunch Speech Therapy, a venture that addresses the special-needs population in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
