opportunities in training of leadership
skills.” They make good contributions
in developing the total student. They
create a better learning environment,”
stated Mrs. Browne.
her main goal was to work at a
predominantly black college. “Being
here has helped me to grow in many
areas. The students are a big help.”

to offer.” She believes that black

help any organization with programm
