Lady O was chosen as a top mentor in the city of Houston because of her efforts to develop individuals from various walks of live. “If it wasn’t for Lady O I would not have perused a degree in Communications at Prairie View A&M University. She seen something in me when I was her student at the age of six, and she never stopped believing in me”, says former student, Perry West. It is evident that Lady has touched many people with her will to be selfless, and her strengths to take on any task that others may be facing.
First Lady of First Metropolitan, Lady O was beyond excited and thrilled to be recognized for an outstanding accomplishment. To be able to mentor is a beautiful gift, and to watch those that you have mentored express their love and appreciation is beyond amazing. Lady O would like to thank First Metropolitan Church & staff, her family, friends, former & current students, Inspire Women’s Staff, and everyone that helped celebrate this experience with her.
