Sigma Gamma Rho’s Rhoer Club is doing powerful work and Rhoer Haley Taylor Schlitz let the the world know at the sorority’s 57th Boule this year.
Haley, a 15-year-old college senior at Texas Woman’s University and member of the Rhoer Club, gave a beautiful speech about black excellence, the struggle, and the future in front of a crowd of SGRho women in Dallas this summer.
“The Rhoer Club is an affiliate organization founded in 1939 for teenage girls. Rhoer Clubs provide young women ages 13 to 18 with positive experiences in leadership development, academic counseling, personal counseling, mentoring, community service, and rites of passage,” the sorority’s website states.
Her mother, Dr. Myiesha Taylor, is a member of Sigma Gamma Rho and after watching this speech, there is no doubt that she is proud of her beautiful and brilliant daughter.
This is what a young woman looks like when she has powerful black mentors in her life.
