WEN Celebrates the Black History Month by remembering those who never quit to make a better tomorrow for us. Our late Grand Roots Patron, Late Ambassador George Haley, was one of those GIANTS who never quit. The heroes of our past, the man whose legacy we are yet to master.
Says Dr. Ezi Mecha, “Those quality hours spent with Ambassador Haley at his backyard as he recounted his experiences and his passion for helping people means so much to me. Watching him water his plants with smiles as he reminisced in his struggles through racism to provide for his family and become who many would rely are precious moments I will never forget. To consider me, that little Alabama girl of Igbo extraction, worth his time, means so much to me and I strive to set a similar example”
WEN’s 1st scholarship, in honor of Ambassador George Haley, will be awarded to a recipient who has taken time to identify his or her roots as well as exhibits distinguished service to humanity.
