WISL To Host Scholarship Luncheon
Women’s Industrial Service League, Inc. (WISL) will sponsor its Annual Scholarship and Awards Luncheon at Antun’s where five senior citizens and six senior high school graduating students will be honored for outstanding community service.
The theme of the luncheon, “Empowered by the Hull Legacy,” is dedicated to the memory of WISL’s founder, Eleanor B. Hull. The community, including religious and political leaders, will converge to witness the extravaganza. Elder Dr. Michael A. Baston, Pastor of St. Luke Cathedral, will deliver the keynote address.
WISL is pleased that this year’s senior honorees (Deaconess Dorothy Baston of Community Church of Astoria; Minister Edna Blackwood of First Baptist Church of Far Rockaway; Elder Etta Maude Heslop-Henry of The Presbyterian Church of St. Albans; Seasoned Steward Marion Johnson of Bethel A.M.E. Church, Far Rockaway; and Mr. Gregory L. Nunn, Founder and President, The Inwood Community Group) are active participants at their houses of worship and/or in their communities. They are committed to making positive differences in the lives of all with whom they come into contact.
The outstanding high school graduating seniors (Jaleesa J. Carter, of Bishop Ford Central Catholic High School; Rodney Green, of Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School; Emma Johnson-Thomas, of Campus Magnet High School of Humanities and Arts; Jazmine C. Kelly, of Channel View School of Research; Tiffany S. Mackey, of John Adams High School; and Ashley C.
