On February 20th in Tamarac, Florida, the Kathleen C. Wright Leadership Academy, Inc. was dedicated. The mission of the Leadership Academy is to provide a rigorous educational program enhanced by character and leadership training. Most of us remember our Delta soror Kathleen who died as a result of a Delta Airlines crash in Dallas, Texas. She was Regional Director for the sorority at the time of her death. Her children are Ronald P. Wright, Sr., Laurette Wright-Scott, and Anthony D. Wright. Congratulations to Broward county and her children for remembering their mother. Francina Lewis Robinson was in Maryland, Eastern Shores last weekend to attend the funeral of her niece Hortense Jean Robinson Jackson who died in Tallahassee. Sympathy to all of the family. Wedding anniversary greetings go out to William and Jessie M. Pinder, Jr. on the occasion of their 67th. Congratulations are also extended to David J. Newbold, Jr. upon his retirement from the City of Miami after 36 -years of service. Welcome home to Vincent Matthews who returned from Georgia after a three-year absence. Get well wishes to Frances Brown, Louise Cleare, Phillip Wallace, Edith Coverson, Freddie, JabboJohnson and all of our many others in the community. Want to wish a happy birthday to Bishop Walter Sands. Dorothy Ellen Jenkins Fields was featured in a recent article about her and the work done at the Black Archives. Your community is so very proud of you. BTW honored its Unsung Heroes on last Sunday at the Annual Orange and Black Tea. Alumni from five historically Black high schools in Miami were recognized for their unique contributions. Cecelia Hunter was chairperson and Paulette Martin served as co-chairperson. Roberta Daniels is the alumni president. All of us will certainly ALWAYS LOVE WHITNEY HOUSTON and most people are still talking about their shock over her untimely death. Her music will never let us forget her. May she rest in peace.
