As the elected 7th National President (2015-Present) of The Society, Incorporated, a preeminent women’s organization focused on developing and advancing talented youth in the arts, I have been an active member of The Society for nearly three decades within the Washington, DC Chapter.
Most recently I served as National Vice-President from 2011-2015. I’m humbled by the opportunity to advance our mission and build upon all that we have achieved over the past 32 years.
The Society has provided thousands of dollars in scholarships to deserving students across the country during its existence. We present numerous scholarships, annually, to highly talented local and international students in Literary, Performing and Visual arts.
Founded in Washington, D.C., we are represented by membership that consists of hundreds of dynamic, altruistic and professional women of color with over 25 Chapters across the US.
These experienced and committed women serve as role models and mentors, providing students with the invaluable opportunity to enhance appreciation for and knowledge of the exciting dimensions of artistic expression.
My objective is to bring even more exposure to youth in the arts through education along with forging new collaborative partnerships with other organizations and corporations that have similar interests.
Collectively with local communities, partnerships with organizations and corporations, we will continue to develop youth in the arts. We look forward sharing this journey of advancing a legacy that our communities can be proud to stand with us.
