Upon our arrival home from the 2018 Session, we hosted a open house to discuss the 2018 General Assembly Session. Thank you to those who stopped by. I truly enjoyed our conversations!
Our post session lunch and learn town hall meeting was a great success! It was widely attended and I hope you were able to take away information that could be beneficial to you.

If you attended and were not able to meet with Diana Shaban to see if you had any unclaimed property, visit the website here, click the "click to claim your property" button and follow the remaining steps. 
Many of you know that I have been living with the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis for the past 23 years. When I was first diagnosed in 1995, there weren't many options for treatment. 

But because of advances in research and treatment, we are moving closer to a world free from multiple sclerosis. We cannot stop until we find a cure for this unpredictable, potentially debilitating illness. 

That is why I've decided to sponsor a team for WALK MS. When you participate, the funds we raise will go towards cutting-edge research, facilitating professional education, providing programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move forward with their lives

The three mile walk will be held at Newport News Park on Saturday, April 7. Free team t-shirts will be given to members of my team. Since I am starting late this year, I have set my goal as only $1,000.  Surely I have enough friends to reach and exceed my goal.

March 14. Students walked out of their schools. For 17 minutes, students all over were united together for this peaceful protest in remembrance of the 17 innocent lives that we lost at Stoneman Douglas and to call for gun legislation that will make us all safer.
I was honored that The Hampton Roads Committee of 200+ Men Inc. selected me as the winner of The 200+ Men Proctor Award for Community Leadership for 2018.
