Drucie R. Chase
Drucie R. Chase, distinguished Community Volunteer, was born in Austin Texas. She attended the public Schools in Austin and graduated with a B.A. degree from Huston-Tillotson College. She taught in the public school systems of Austin, Texas and Houston Texas. She was married to John S. Chase (now deceased), noted architect in the City of Houston, and they were members of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. They have three children: John S. Chase III, Anthony R. Chase, and Saundria Chase Gray. Drucie and John have also been blessed with 5 grandchildren.
Drucie Chase serves on the Board of the Houston Botanic Gardens, The Houston Museum of African American Culture, and most currently the Board of the Emancipation Park Conservancy. She is a member of several organizations including the Houston Chapter of the Links Inc., Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, and The Moles.
It is Drucie’s firm belief that the Emancipation Park, because of its culture and history, has been and will continue to be a major asset to the inner City in the Greater Third Ward Area, and to the City of Houston.
