Lula Bell Houston

In 2004, our laundry was officially named the "Lula Bell Houston Laundry" in honor of the woman who worked at the laundry for 57 years before retiring in 2004. Lula Bell always had a kind word and a smile for the thousands of students she greeted at the laundry. It was her dedication and spirit that moved the Trustees of Davidson College to name the facility in honor of a staff member, an honor normally reserved for large donors and great leaders in our history.
