President Jimmy Carter and former first lady, Rosalynn, attended a ceremony at Wesleyan College Thursday afternoon, honoring the woman who was perhaps the country's best-known "first mother."
Lillian Carter, recognized in the late 70's as America's "favorite grandmother," and perhaps best-known as "Miz Lillian," earned one more title.
In a ceremony, Thursday morning, President Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalynn accepted a Georgia Women of Achievement Award in honor of the late Mrs. Carter.
Rosalynn, the keynote speaker, says her spunk made Miss Lillian a household name.
"You never knew what she was going to say," says Carter.
Rosalynn Carter, a Plains native like her husband, says she spent much of her childhood at the Carter house; she was best friends with Jimmy's younger sister, Ruth.
Carter says, the times never changed Miss Lillian, not even Jimmy's presidency.
