TABPHE Mourns the Loss of a Former State President
After a brief illness, Pearlene “Pearl” Conyers transitioned to be with our Lord on Saturday, March 27, 2021, while resting quietly at her home in San Antonio. During the 1990s, Pearl served the Texas Association of Black Personnel in Higher Education (TABPHE) honorably as a member of the San Antonio Chapter, President of the San Antonio Chapter and a TABPHE State Board Member. In 1999, she was voted to serve as President-Elect of our association, and in 2001, she ascended to TABPHE state presidency and served in that capacity until 2003.
Pearl spent her life as a devoted Christian and active church member. Professionally, Pearl was a counselor and Director of Counseling at St. Philip’s College in San Antonio. In 2011, she was recognized as one of the longest serving members of the St. Philip’s family, having worked at the institution for 40 years. Current TABPHE State President Dr. Alexander Okwonna asks that all TABPHE members join with the TABPHE State Board in praying for the Conyers family. Pearl Conyers’ loving spirit will be missed by all.
