Wellington invites the community to attend the first annual “Black History Month Leadership Forum” on Wednesday, February 1st, from 6:30 PM-8:30 PM at the Wellington Community Center (12150 Forest Hill Blvd).

This event will feature more than ten prominent black leaders from both the Wellington and Palm Beach County communities, representing the fields of medicine, education, business, and more.

A special thanks to Marcia Andrews, Palm Beach County School Board Member, District 6, and Marcia Hayden, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Alpha Alpha Upsilon Omega Chapter President, for hosting this inaugural event.

The forum will provide an opportunity for attendees to engage with these leaders, ask questions and build meaningful relationships. The event will also provide a platform for attendees to learn from each other’s experiences and successes. Light refreshments will be served.

We hope you will join us for this important event and help us celebrate the achievements of the Black community during Black History Month.
