The depth and breadth of the offerings and benefit of Legacy Education and Community Empowerment Foundation, Inc. surpass many other foundations that have as their goal to improve the well-fare and overall well-being of students. I especially appreciate that Legacy incorporates the entire community in which these students live, learn, and labor to lead. As a retired school and district-level administrator, the development of the total child has been my top priority. Legacy invests not only in the academic achievement of its students but in their development and empowerment to become successful community leaders and contributors who successfully impact and serve others while taking pride in paying forward the benefits they received.
I especially appreciate that Legacy invests in the character development of the students, teaching them life-long skills that will enable them to exist, navigate, and participate in a global society with integrity. They are taught a sense of community, how to focus on the concerns of others while making selfless, positive, and generous contributions to those in need. By teaching them that "no one is an island unto himself," Legacy students are taught to reach out and embrace others, help others and support each other while learning to coexist within a community of love and caring.
Thanks for all you do for our children and this community. Your dedication is very appreciative.

My name is Stephanie Rhodes and I have been associated with Legacy since 2012. In that year, the founder Constance Slaughter-Harvey asked me to interview those who have made significant contributions to the community for the African-American Historical Society. Since then, I have interviewed several history-makers and I learned a great deal about the background of Morton, Mississippi. While I am fortunate to be a part of this organization, the greatest award is the idea that young people will benefit from the hard work and ground-breaking accomplishments of the interviewees.
Dr. Rhodes, Thank you for your outstanding commitment to the African-American Historical Society of Scott County and the Board of Directors (as Secretary). You have single handedly conducted extensive interviews of historical storytelling and we are indebted to you for you service.
They’re really supportive and have taught me a lot.
