Hannah Jeanette (Jennie) Boyd, Kappa's first Secretary and the oldest founder, graduated from Monmouth in 1875 and taught school for years in the East Ward School in Monmouth and in the public schools in Omaha, Kansas. She had been raised on a large farmstead in Monmouth. Jennie never married and considered her Kappa sister and sister-in-law, Louise Bennett Boyd, her "sister." Jennie was described as having executive ability, a keen and analytical mind, and was the first Grand Secretary of Kappa Kappa Gamma in 1871. Ill during her later years, Jennie died in 1927 while on a visit to her brother in Florida, tended by Lou, and is buried in Green Cove springs. Two nieces, Helen Boyd Whiteman and Katherine Boyd Graham, were initiated by Alpha Chapter in 1934.
