The Makings of Visionary Leadership:

A Person You Should Know PYSK Series

UCIGC Black History Month of February

Ponder for a moment the question - What makes one person move to great achievement and another simply live existence? What determines how far an individual will go? Is it purely in the genes or does opportunity knock in disguise daily for each of us?
UCIGC’sThe Makings of Visionary Leadership - A Person You Should Know Series will put the spotlight on otherwise everyday persons who stir us to consider this matter and perhaps take a step forward as together we observe Black History Month.

Brief Background to UCIGC PYSK Series

Created in February 2013 by Mirika Sentongo:

The purpose of the project is really to cast a spot light on people who through their quiet daily mundane do things of tremendous impact to their community - but go unnoticed in mainstream. We have the Giants of History most of whom are gone from our eyes. February is the month set apart to observe their contributions to society.

The question is always what about those we have before our very eyes? PYSK Series is dedicated to the impressionable young reader, the young adult in our community, the visitor who happens upon the website from any number of realms - academia, the curious, the searching etc. The series is dedicated to public education. Click around on each nominee’s template for links to websites so that you can read more about the nominees or purchase products or support the nominee’s causes.  

For the purpose of transparency and full disclosure I have no economic or other gains from this project other than pure  joy I get from providing our community and our children (in the broadest sense of the term) with tangible inspiration they can use on their personal journeys in search for sense of direction, meaning and purpose in this life.
