Why I Serve on the Spelman College Board of Trustees

Spelman has given me perspective, community, and empowerment to boldly pursue my interests and passions. Already having an understanding of the importance of Spelman as an institution, I am honored to serve and be an active participant in the promotion and maintenance of the college. More than this, I’m looking forward to learning from the esteemed members of the board and gaining a deeper understanding of how boards function.
