Carolyn “T.C.” Roberson, Mid-Cities (TX) Chapter
“Determined, Devoted and Destined”.
I bring you greetings on behalf of The Mid-Cities (TX) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated. I am proud and honored to have been elected as the chapter’s thirteenth President. As I embark upon this important and monumental responsibility, I humbly stand on the strong and capable shoulders of the previous presidents whose visions, challenging work and deliverance of excellent programming set a solid foundation for our chapter. For this reason, I am committed to carrying the torch of preserving the legacy of delivering quality programming to the Arlington, Grand Prairie and Irving communities.
As a chapter, our members are committed to service, especially as it relates to the disenfranchised and underserved youth within our targeted area. Our Services to Youth facet, through STEM Education and Career Awareness, The Arts, along with National and International Trends focus on those in need are a priority as we strive to provide youth with the highest level of exposure to the STEM and STEAM fields of study and professions.
The Links, Incorporated is one of the largest and oldest women’s volunteer service organizations in our nation, with over 14,000 predominantly African American women, across 288 chapters located in 41 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas and the United Kingdom.
The Mid-Cities (TX) Chapter membership is comprised of 48 gifted and professional women, who possess and demonstrate the true meaning of the words “Friendship and Service”. The chapter was chartered 34 years ago, on April 20, 1985, by 25 talented women, comprised of business executives, outstanding and recognized educators and administrators, legal professionals and medical experts. Over the past 24 years, the chapter has sponsored the Black-Tie Boxing event ”A Knockout Affair” Fundraiser, which has enabled us to sponsor and support our signature programs as well as the Sallye Moore ( Linked to STEM) Scholarship during each of those years. While the chapter will not be sponsoring “A Knockout Affair” this year, please know that we will resume our Black-Tie Fundraising event in August of 2020. So please, pencil us in on your 2020 calendar!
Because of our patrons, sponsors and friend’s generosity for so many years, we have been able to offer our scholarship recipients, who were majoring in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM or STEAM), scholarships totaling more than $200,000.
Thank you so much for visiting our website! We welcome your support and feedback and please feel free to reach out to me if I can be of assistance to you.
