“I just want to make your life easier.”
“Everyone can help someone take one step forward.”
A mentor to the mentors and a mother to the children, Ms. Eddie helps lead a team of young people as they care for hundreds of children each month at the Ingersoll Community Center.
What began as a volunteer job while she was unemployed so she could support the center that was blessing her son, transitioned naturally into a staff role at the center. Her heart to pour herself out for others stems from a father who she watched represent and fight for the seniors in his community for years.
Mrs. Eddie believes that listening and observing play a vital role in fruitful leadership, while caring means sometimes stepping back so others can step up and learn to solve their own problems.
