Inspired to Lead

In May’s Neighborhood Voice, Rechelle Williams read about a soon-to-be leaderless Girl Scouts troop. The 12 girls met at the Sterling Branch Library in Central and needed a new leader. So, as if her hands weren't full enough, Williams--a government employee and the mother of a five year-old son and two young adult daughters--stepped in. When she and I recently met over coffee, I asked her.

Teacher Helps Girls Take Flight

Eighth-grade English teacher Emerald Hall doesn't play. She expects her students to work hard, just like she does. I could tell that Hall, 44, meant business the moment my 14-year-old daughter told me about her.

Local drill team encourages focus and precision

As I approached the church doors at Mt. Sinai Baptist Church on Woodland Avenue, I heard deep thunders of unified stomps and shattering claps responding to a voice of strength guiding the bodily music. I had no idea where I was going initially, however, I just followed the sounds of ancient times — stomps and claps. When I finally turned the corner into the room, there.
