Tougaloo Alum, Shirlethia Franklin, Esq. '04 has been appointed a White House Fellow!! After a highly competitive selection process, twelve individuals have been selected as members of the 2013-2014 Class of White House Fellows! Please EVERYONE SHARE THIS and Join Us in Congratulating "LeLe" on a Job Well Done! #TC1869

About the White House Fellowship:

Founded in 1964, the White House Fellows program is one of America's most prestigious programs for leadership and public service. White House Fellowships offer exceptional young men and women first-hand experience working at the highest levels of the federal government. Selected individuals typically spend a year working as a full-time, paid Fellow to senior White House Staff, Cabinet Secretaries and other top-ranking government officials. Fellows also participate in an education program consisting of roundtable discussions with renowned leaders from the private and public sectors, and trips to study U.S. policy in action both domestically and internationally. Fellowships are awarded on a strictly non-partisan basis.
. . . 
In return for the privilege of participating in the Fellowship year, Fellows are expected to apply what they have learned by contributing to the nation as greater leaders in their respective communities, professions, and in public service. Fellows are expected to return to their former or new occupations more experienced in public policy decision-making and better prepared to contribute to national affairs, thereby fulfilling the mission of the program.

Tougaloo Alumni are Getting it Done! Will you help me Congratulate Waikinya Clanton for being named the new Executive Director for the National Organization of Executive Black Women? 

NOBEL-WOMEN WELCOMES A NEW GENERATION OF FEMALE LEADERSHIP
Legislative Organization Nabs Emerging Talent for Executive Director Position 

Washington, DC–Canton, Mississippi native, Ms. Waikinya Clanton has elevated to become one of Washington’s youngest women to watch. With several years of Capitol Hill experience, Clanton has been tasked to serve as the Executive Director of the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women (NOBEL-Women). 

During her time in the Metropolitan area, Clanton has successfully and methodically navigated Washington power circles, establishing immediate rapport among some of the areas heaviest hitters. 

Over the years, Clanton has been named as an emerging leader by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, profiled in the National Journal, co-authored articles for Politico365.com and named as a Capital Cause Featured Young Philanthropist. She brings to the NOBEL-Women establishment a wealth of knowledge and expertise. 

Prior to joining the NOBEL-Women organization, Clanton previously worked for the United States House of Representatives in the office of Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (MS-2) and served as the President of the Congressional Black Associates (CBA), coordinator of the Deltas on the Hill network and member of the African American Women on the Hill Network (AAWHN).

NOBEL-Women is a non-profit, non-partisan national organization originally established in 1985 to increase and promote the presence of black women in government. NOBEL-Women is composed primarily of current and former black women legislators, in addition to a number of appointed officials. In recent years, NOBEL-Women have expanded its vision to serve as a global voice to address the countless issues affecting the lives of women; despite race, class or orientation.

From its inception, this organization has inspired women to take an active role in public policy and has served as a catalyst to provide economic and social justice for all classes and races of people.
