INROADS would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all who supported our annual INROADS Benefit Gala on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at Union Station in Washington, D.C. With your support, we are able to continue impacting lives through our many programs, including College Links and the Leadership Development Academy.
We say, “Thank You” to each of you for helping us celebrate our founder Frank C. Carr and his amazing dream. Not only have you helped transform the lives of students, but you have helped us build a community of diverse business men and women.
It was an honor to recognize those within INROADS and outside our organization who have gone above and beyond in their professional life to honor Frank C. Carr’s vision. Lockheed Martin, Tim Ryan of PwC and the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, we sincerely thank you for your individual commitments to diversity and building leaders of the future.
We would also like to congratulate our outstanding alumni Darryl Willis and Caleb Tacuri who both exemplify what INROADS interns can achieve. As the INROADS 2018 Rising Star Award Recipient and Research Fellow at the United States Department of Defense, Caleb shared his story of failure and great success with the help of INROADS Leadership Development Institute and mentorship throughout the program. “From my professional growth in my INROADS experience … [I learned to not] doubt yourself for who you were, but [to] believe in yourself for who you are.” This testimony truly exhibited what INROADS interns can accomplish.
Through collective action, we celebrated the achievements of our honorees and raised awareness of our programs, but our work is not over. We encourage those who were not in attendance at our Gala to still participate in INROADS giving. With your support, we can better serve our interns comprised of more than 4,000 students in the U.S., Mexico and Canada, through annual programs and events.
Support us today so that we can continue to make an impact in the lives of our students.
