This past weekend I attended the Pursuit of Dreams’ 2011 Minority Mentorship Symposium, founded by the lovely Coach Beverly Kearney on the campus of Texas University in Austin, Texas. The weekend featured distinguished individuals from the sports, entertainment, corporate, political and academic arenas from around the country. If you are not familiar with Bev, she is one of the most successful and decorated coaches across all of collegiate athletics, Beverly Kearney is in her 18th season as the women’s track and field and cross country head coach at The University of Texas. Not to mention she taught herself how to walk again after a paralyzing car accident back in 2002. Phenomenal Lady!!!
I was honored, along with several other women, receiving the Divine Diva award from Bev’s “Pursuit of Dreams” Foundation for our philanthropic efforts and distinguished careers.
The legendary Eddie Levert also stopped by to show his support.
MC Lyte, Bev, and LeToya Luckett were there and struck a pose with Cookie Johnson at her Neiman Marcus in-store for her chic jean clothing line.
Here I am speaking at a pep rally for 2000 kids…..
To close off the weekend, we all partied at Bev’s house where Tank and Letoya Luckett performed. Check it out…..
