On November 3, 2016, nine members of the FWHA staff, including our CEO/Executive Director George Guy, attended the Boys & Girls Club Annual Smart Girls Brilliant Women luncheon. This event fundraiser supports the year long program which provides over 300 young women the opportunity to learn about health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement.
Education and academic performance are also a critical component of the program, as young women who live at or below the poverty line are vulnerable to bad choices that continue the poverty cycle. This luncheon marks the accomplishment of these young women, honors top nominees and designates a “Smart Girl of the Year”; but, more importantly, it demonstrates throughout the year, how these young women can improve their lives.
This year, one of our residents, Savanna Mosby, age 11, of our Brookmill Court Community was honored at the luncheon and was nominated for "Smart Girl of the Year". We are incredibly proud of Savanna and all that she has done and look forward to seeing what she accomplishes in the future!
