I started a non-profit in honor of the service by a philanthropist in my community named Thomas Colson Woody; T. Colson Woody was born and lived in Orange, New Jersey. He attended the Orange Public Schools and, except for his attendance at Virginia State College and New York University, he lived in Orange for his entire life. He was proprietor of the Woody Home for Services, a funeral home in Orange on Oakwood Avenue. Colson (as he was called), took over the funeral business started by his mother, Mary Colson Woody, whose business was located on Central Place. Mrs. Woody was the first female funeral director in the State of New Jersey.

Because the nature of the funeral business, Colson worked 24 hours a day, seven days per week (24/7) as a businessman in Orange, he contributed to a long list of causes. He even helped young businessmen studying for the mortuary business, helping them to set up businesses even if it meant competition. He was active in the Oakwood Branch of the YMCA, Boy Scouts, NAACP, and the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. Additionally, he served on the Orange Planning Board and the Orange Board of Education.

He lived an exemplary life in Orange and this city is better for his having contributions to his life here.

Sadie Nash Leadership Project (SNLP) is an AMAZING non-profit. I started out as a teacher for their summer program and witnessed first-hand the transformation of dozens of young women from New York City's public schools over the course of a six-week summer leadership institute. Since then, the program now operates year-round and makes a meaningful impact in young women's lives. As a Board member now, it is a privilege to be part of an extremely dynamic and well-run organization (SNLP was awarded the New York Times prize for best managed non-profit last year).

I have visited Sadie Nash classes many times and I am always amazed and inspired by the work the young women do there and how the program transforms their lives. No other organization approaches leadership the way Sadie Nash does: by giving participants the tools and support they need to define leadership for themselves and then act as leaders within their own communities.

The Great!
