From The President's Desk
Greetings my Sisters of NCNW!
My Vision as the new President of NCNW is to lead with purpose, integrity, a strong sense of self-worth, and to return to our roots of being involved in the community. Our motto is “ Strength Within Deep Roots” and is what we are all about.
I remember that Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune's Last Will and Testament, where she asked of us in our Litany, “I leave you finally a responsibility to our young people.” We read this in every meeting so that we can remember why we come together. We are here to serve our communities and make sure they continue and thrive long after we are gone.
The youth are our future and they will take over as future managers of this world. Our children must never lose their zeal, which is why we must continue to build a better world. They must not be discouraged from aspiring towards greatness, “...for they are to be the leaders of tomorrow.”
Many of our initiatives revolve around our young people. It is important that the Charlotte section of the NCNW continue to make a difference in our communities by helping our youth. This is one reason I am so passionate about leading this great section. I know that many of us are beacons of light in the community and with the youth.
So, let us work together and fulfill this goal! I look forward to a great two years and beyond! “What do we live our lives for if it is not to make life less difficult for others.”
