I want to serve on the Urban League Board because I feel it is extremely important to give back to the community where I live and work. I appreciate the opportunity to move here from the Quad Cities and work for CityLink. It is a blessing to also be associated with an organization such as the Urban League which has members who work tirelessly to provide needed services in the community.
I hope to help the Urban League through volunteering my time and resources at my disposal. I have unique ideas and a work ethic that will make a great difference in the Peoria area community.
