WE Lead was created by undergraduate women in 2014 hoping to address the deficit of female leadership in our community and our nation. These undergraduates direct, organize, and operate the entire conference under the supervision of the Shackouls Honors College.
WE Lead is proud to announce its 2017 conference counselors, who will work closely with directors Roxanne Raven and Isabella Durham: Rontier Whitfield, Leslie Charleston, Erin Burchfield, and Cora Howell.
In 2015, director Roxanne Raven lead the conference along with counselors Kylie Dennis, Melissa Weitzel, Morgan Hydrick, Feifei Zeng, Alivia Roberts, Megill Imes, Sarah Poppelreiter, and Taylor Trippe.
In 2014, Jamie Aron, Roxanne Raven, Nandita Gupta, Kiara Benson, and Kate Thompson led the conference in July along with graduate students Ashley Baker and Jessica Arends.
WE Lead Mission
WE Lead encourages young high school women to pursue higher education, community involvement, and leadership positions. We hope to instill key leadership qualities through our summer conference in hopes for a better Mississippi and a better tomorrow.
