What is this holiday for?
You may think this holiday has something to do with chickens but it doesn't. National Chicken Lady Day is for honoring Dr. Marthenia "Tina" Dupree who was given this nickname because she worked for a major chicken fast food chain for many years of her life and many people in the community refered to her as the chicken lady.
Origin of this Holiday?
Dr. Dupree worked for several years in one of the highest level positions for the second largest chicken restaurant chain in the world as their Director of Community Relations and Training.
When Tina resigned her position with the corporation to start her own business, the fast food restaurant chain hired her and retained Tina as their spokesperson and community representative.
Tina Dupree was invited to meet President Bush in the Oval Office due to her efforts to raise the educational standards in her community.
In honor of Dr. Dupree, President Bush proclaimed November 4th as "National Chicken Lady Day!"
Her monthly radio program
features issues and concerns of the afrocentric community. Special guests include prominent business owners, authors, speakers, consultants, corporate representatives and religious leaders.
