Greetings HAULYP Friends & Family,
As I reflect on the accomplishments of this past year and the foundation that has been laid I can barely contain my excitement. 2014 was a year of growth as it helped to develop the leaders that make up the 2015 board and now it’s time to work!
Our communities have seen a number of social and racial injustices as of late. This has set the stage for Young Professionals across the nation to unite & take action to make a change for the better.
I invite you to join us in our efforts to create a positive impact in our families & communities. We need your help to educate, develop “true” awareness, and immeasurable change. We need new leaders in the areas of community service, civic engagement, fund development and many more.
How can I help? Can I do more? Did I make a difference today? Something has to change. I want to do more. I will do more. As you reflect on these questions & statements to see how they impact you directly I have only one request in 2015. Take action! Join HAULYP, sign up for a committee, create solutions and make a difference.
With Passion & Purpose Yours in the Movement,
Ray B. Shackelford
