Greetings from the President!
On behalf of the Fort Valley Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, I am very pleased to greet you. We constitute one of the 276 Chapters of The Links, Incorporated, an international, not-for-profit corporation, established in 1946. Standing proudly among 12,000 professional women of color from 41 states, the District of Columbia, and the Bahamas, members of this Chapter are actively engaged in the Middle Georgia area, providing services that respond to the broad array of social, health, cultural, educational, economic and global needs of the communities we serve. Some of our signature programs are: Sister’s Keepers, Childhood Obesity, the Poster Arts and Back to School initiatives , the HBCU initiative, STEM: Out of the Box Thinkers and the annual Walk-A-Thon.
Over the past eight years, this membership has established two $ 10,000 endowed scholarships at Fort Valley State University. Additionally, each year, the Chapter awards a scholarship to a deserving student who enrolls at Fort Valley State University. This student is chosen from within our service area – the counties of Peach, Houston, Taylor and Macon. As we continue serving the Middle Georgia area, standing on the founding tenets of The Links, Incorporated – Friendship and Service, we welcome and thank you for your continued support of our endeavors.
