Congratulations to Jessica McClellan, Class of 2023, for a successful “Evening of Impact” gala supporting her nonprofit Giving Hope & Help. Class of 2023 members were in attendance to support this inspiring event that is in it’s 10th year.

Class members in attendance included Dawn Attaway, Schylon Kubic, Loren Prince, Yolanda Clark & Greater MO Executive Director Katie Steele Danner. Samara Jones, Class of 2023, was the table sponsor but she was unable to attend due to an unexpected sporting final her son was participating in.

Giving Hope & Help is a Kansas City nonprofit “that supports domestic violence survivors, provides essential resources to end period poverty, empowers college bound and non-traditional students and inspires cancer patients, lifting all those we serve to live their best life.”

Congratulations Jessica on a successful event! Shown here is a Missouri Senate Proclamation presented by State Senator Barbara Washington during the event to Jessica and her husband.

The Class of 2023 have reached the halfway point in their Leadership Challenge year. They have enthusiastically embraced activities that further the vision of GMLF by coordinating this table of GMLC participants, alumnae, and friends to attend charitable events, roundtables, symposiums or luncheons, social networking, or other opportunities to continue to learn about issues important to Missouri. Kudos!
