Governor’s Council

Support Ann’s legacy and help our girls change the world.

Before she died in 2006, Governor Richards laid out her vision for the Ann Richards School. As the first in her family to attend college, she was committed to advancing education and empowering young women from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
