Through her generous spirit and technical expertise, Roxanne Williams has provided the DC community with a much needed organization, Urban Ed that focuses on extending educational opportunities for at-risk individuals, so that they can position themselves for both professional and personal success. Ms. Williams’ programs are comprehensive in that they provide both the technical skills for professional success and interpersonal dynamics for personal achievement. Both of these elements contributes to the overall success of the candidate and provides them with a fundamental understanding of the importance of “paying it forward” by giving back to your community. Ms. Williams is a dynamic leader of this organization and shoulders much responsibility in her efforts at educating and revitalizing the Anacostia community. I am very proud to be associated with this organization.
