Day 2: Superintendent Darienne Driver, Ed.D.

October 1st, 2014— Dr. Darienne Driver was unanimously appointed the position to lead Milwaukee Public Schools as the FIRST African American female, Superintendent of Schools! Dr. Driver is a high-energy visionary who has initiated a series of bold reform measures designed to improve student outcomes through deeper engagement with community organizations, parents, students and staff, and by increasing opportunities for staff development and support.

Driver is truly an inspiration to me and one of my favorite people in the entire world. Literally everyone close to me knows that.
Not too many individuals can say that they’re close to the Superintendent of Schools, so I really value Dr. Driver and the person she is.

Continue to do the things you do for the students of Milwaukee Public Schools, educational field and our City, Dr. Driver; It’ll never be in vain!

Day #1 : Alderwoman Milele Coggs
Girls Day at City Hall was my first time stepping into City Hall. You made it more memorable as ever! Your voice really stood out to me, which encouraged me to become the person I am today. Thank you for everything that you’re doing in the 6th District and better yet, in our city as a whole! ❤️

In light of the Milwaukee Youth Council’s RFP being released I will share a story with you all:

Last week Wednesday I attended a Town-hall Meeting about the City’s budget hosted by Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs. Among those attending were a group of very brilliant Urban UndergroundYouth. As I walked in Simone Lewis-Turner, a youth at Urban Underground, asked a very important question. She asked was there any youth voice being heard when it came to how the budget was spent. Now I was pleased to share with her that the Youth Council allocates 10% of the reprogramming funds from CDBG every year.

I was mostly impressed by the fact that a 15 year old young lady had the courage to stand up in front of a crowd and ask a question that clearly shows she is heading down the right path. I know that when I was that age, I was very reluctant to stand up in front of crowds. I will remain amazed and hope-full knowing that the future for our youth is bright! #LetTheLightOfTheGoodShineBright

Thank You to Urban Underground to continuously helping youth grow into spectacular individuals and thank you to Simone for being a voice for youth!
