While growing up in Pleasantville, unbeknown to me at that time, I was mentored by several outstanding Community Leaders such as Judson & Margarette Robinson, Minnie Wallace and of course, my parents (Talmadge & Geneva Sharp) & others.

I overheard many meetings in our home from the other room and watch as they organized, planned and even involved the youth in the community in passing out fliers and participating in walking blocks to keep residents informed & educated about the community. As a result, I developed the desire to give back to my community. That’s why I have incorporated my life experiences to encourage economic empowerment as a mindset in our community. Like the past leaders of Pleasantville, I believe that we who benefited from growing up in Pleasantville must give back in whatever way our God has blessed us!
