County Manager Selected for North Carolina Women’s History Month Leadership in Action Award
In honor of Women’s History Month, I have been selected as an honoree for a 2016 Career Mastered Leadership in Action Award. The Career Mastered Awards is sponsored and presented by Linwick & Associates, LLC, a global human resources consulting firm.
The annual Career Mastered Awards honors women leaders who have made a compelling mark on business and are exceptionally strong role models of what a woman can do. Its mission is to bring powerful women together to support, celebrate and encourage one another while inspiring future generations to greater achievements.
Proceeds from the program are donated to Excel Village Center for Learning, a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire individuals to live up to their potential and create winning futures by partnering with schools and businesses within the community.
Twenty-five women will be honored and I am proud to be part of such a distinguished group. Other honorees include: Mayor Jennifer Roberts, Joan Higginbotham, former astronaut; Ana Maria Varon-Bonell, executive producer Capital Broadcasting Inc.; Kerry Barr O’Conner, president Dress for Success and Jacqie McWilliams, CIAA commissioner. Park and Rec and Urban League of Central Carolinas Offer Free Computer Classes
Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation and the Urban League of Central Carolinas are partnering to offer free computer classes to support digital inclusion and digital literacy efforts for those who are part of the "digital divide.”
Classes are currently offered Monday mornings at the Bette Rae Thomas Recreation Center and cover topics such as computer basics, Internet basics, email and social media. The program will be offered at additional County recreation centers in the coming months.
This partnership allows the County to offer these important skills to residents in areas that are accessible and already have computers. There is no cost to the County.
To learn more about the classes, contact Jeff Carwile at 980-722-2113 or Jeff.Carwile@MecklenburgCountyNC.gov. Mecklenburg County to Participate in Upcoming Career Fairs
