Sheila Gardner is returning as treasurer and Marcia Houston and George Smith-Whitfield, corresponding and recording secretary respectively, were previously appointed to complete unexpired terms. “It’s great to have some continuity at the executive level,” said, Wiggins. “I am also grateful for the outstanding leadership that Vice President Dr. Victoria Winbush provided over the last several years. She joined the executive committee to complete an unexpired term of corresponding secretary and was nominated and elected vice-president. She has served BFSO diligently and faithfully. We wish her well as she transitions from the University, over the summer semester, as Graduate Faculty with the School of Social Work.
