Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Jabberwocks Compete for Pageant Crown

In the month of March, I will be photographing the Delta Sigma Theta Jabberwock Ball where seven beautiful young high school seniors will be recognized into society. I love this opportunity because these ladies have such bright futures ahead of them and it's always a pleasure to learn about their future careers. Not to mention it's a joy to see how sorority organizations are giving back to their communities in the form of scholarships and community service. Congratulations to the distinguished seven (you know there's luck in that numeric number) and wish you all the best. See you in March!

The photos above were taken by me and additional photo highlights are to come - stay tune.

Seniors Mentored by Eddie Glaude at SCLC Youth Leadership Conference

Oh to be a high school senior again. Those days seem so long ago. The opportunities high school seniors have these days are nothing like what I had available when I was coming up in high school. They have more scholarships available, organizations that take you under their wing, mentor you and even prepare you for the job market. Last Friday, a couple hundred local high school seniors from various schools in the greater Kansas City area, gathered at the Ewing Kauffman Center for the annual SCLC Youth Leadership Conference. Breakfast and lunch were provided. The youth participated in several break-out sessions surrounding such topics as:
  • Choosing a Career Path
  • Sexual Choices
  • Social Networking/Self Respect
  • Teen Relationships
  • Teen Empowerment

Facilitators for the breakout sessions were: David Belt; Catherine Flowers; James Koppang; D. Antoine Lilly; and Kenton Schiele.

Morning guest speaker was legendary basketball star, Clay Johnson. The afternoon luncheon speaker was Professor Eddie Glaude, Jr.
