Taronda Spencer, 54: Spelman College archivist

Taronda Spencer, 54: Spelman College archivist, historian

A native of New Orleans, Spencer was a second generation archivist. Spencer’s mother, who worked in the field for 42 years, hoped her only daughter would choose a college close to home, but Spelman beckoned to the younger woman, Emanuella Julien Spencer said of her daughter.
“She loved Spelman College,” Spencer said. “Hearing from some of the young women since Taronda died, it is just so nice to know my baby touched so many lives.”
The senior Spencer said she heard stories of her daughter’s efforts to remind young women why they were in college. The younger Spencer also took time to motivate new, and not-so-new, Spelmanites to do their best work in college and in life.
