St. George’s Scholar Institute has been a pillar of our community for over 50 years. The founding location was within walking distance of my grandmother Charlye Mae & James Trowell’s home located off 22nd & Oak Street. My family would often use the gym to host holiday celebrations, birthdays, and I felt a connection to St. George’s before I even joined the Board. In 2014, as a participant of the Leadership Louisville Center’s Ignite Program, I got the opportunity to meet Executive Director Arthur Cox and learn more about St. George’s as one of the program contestants. I learned more about the mission, the work being done to embrace, educate, and empower our youth and jumped at the opportunity to do more work in the same community that helped raise me.

After moving to Louisville 11 years ago, we have been welcomed and supported by many people. My business success and families happiness would not have been possible without our community. I want to give back to those in need in our community to return this generosity. St. George’s is a perfect fit for me because it is directly helping underserved students achieve their goals and full potential. I have enjoyed the past 2.5 years of working with our talented students, staff and other board members. A wonderful, inspiring group of Louisville people!

I believe St. George’s Scholar Institute provides invaluable life lessons and scholarly guidance to young men and women in Louisville, particularly Black K through 12th grade students who face life obstacles due to no fault of their own. I feel compelled to help these young people have confidence in their future and ample opportunity for success. I could not find better partners and colleagues than with the board of directors and staff of St. George’s.

I was born and raised in the West End of Louisville and feel that St. George’s Scholar Institute helps me ensure that children get the opportunities that they need to be successful in school and in life. Having attended Louisville Central High, and the University of Louisville, I understand some of the obstacles that our youth can encounter while balancing the demands at home and at school. I have served for almost 15 years and can’t be any more proud of the impact that we have had in our community.

I first encountered St. George’s through my work with JCPS. The intentionality of the mission and the dedication of the Board make the place move forward. The staff, though, are the reason I want to stay on the Board. They believe in the kids. They love them, and they develop programs that will set the kids up for a successful life. I’m couldn’t be prouder of SGSI! I look forward to continued work with SGSI.

I am new to the board, but what drew me to St. George’s Scholar Institute was that not only can I use my accounting background as a licensed CPA to help SGSI, but also have a direct impact in empowering youth. St. George’s Scholar Institute amazed me with the youth programs offered that consider a wide array of students’ interests and backgrounds, from the Urban Arts Institute that supports entrepreneurship to the Always Sister mentoring project. I am excited to embark on this new journey with SGSI.
