The family later moved to Lowndes County, Alabama where she became a member of Mount Olive Baptist Church in Burkeville, Alabama. She was educated in the public schools of Lowndes County.

Betty graduated from Alabama State University and became a public-school teacher in Memphis, Tennessee. She then met her future husband, Reverend John H. Corbitt. They moved to Little Rock, Arkansas, where Betty also taught in the public schools.

Betty and Reverend Corbitt later became the parents of two sons, Bruce and Terry Corbitt. Betty received a Masters degree from the University of Central Arkansas. She also studied at the University of Maine, Tuskegee University, and Furman University. In 1974, the family relocated to Greenville, South Carolina. Here, Betty became a teacher in the Greenville County public school system. She retired from Greenville County schools in 2007.
