Meet the Family: Katie “Nana” Mott

Posted on August 19, 2011


Meet Katie Hoyt Mott, my mom’s mom. MANY people know her and love her because she taught Home Economics at Rapides High School (LeCompte, LA) for over 30 years. I was privileged to be her student during her last year of teaching.   She taught hundreds of girls to be excellent cooks, seamstresses, and managers of the home.

I am very proud of the heritage I have in her. She’s an outstanding woman who has survived much in her lifetime. I have learned so much from her and continue to treasure her.

Get to know “Nana” in this video my brother created as a short documentary of her life experiences.

If you knew her, please leave a comment telling me what you love about her. If you just met her, let me know who her story has inspired you.
