Inspiration: “Be a part of the process that brings positive change.”— My dad, Todd P. Western II
What working in this community means to me: “It means I am involved in strengthening key aspects of my community and improving the lives of those who have been marginalized. It also means a great deal to me to be able to witness these changes as they develop.”
