"Family and friends are very important to me and I take every opportunity to spend time with them making memories. In my spare time; I love to cook, entertain, travel, and read."

"Juneteenth is important to me because our history is important and it is necessary that we educate others on our history and contributions as they are so often overlooked and/or not brought to light at all. Kansas, Salina specifically has great history to be told and I want to make certain that "we" as a committee do our part to educate and share our history with the community."

I am originally from Kentucky and moved to Salina with the love

of my life in 2004. I have 2 sons, 2 daughters, 6 grandsons,

1 granddaughter, and another another granddaughter due 

August 2022. I decided to get involved with local event and have

been on the committee for 7 years. I am also involved with the 

Order of the Eastern Stars- PHA, Order of the Golden Circle-PHA, Altrusa International of Salina,

and Salina Area United Way. Juneteenth is important to me as it reminds

us of the struggle that our people came through and is also a way for us to 

remember and celebrate how far we have come

and how much we still have to accomplish.

A lifelong resident of Salina, I have worked on

the Juneteenth celebration since 2008.

I feel it is an important remembrance of where we

as a people have come from and provides us with the

opportunity to come together and move forward .
