Delaware first lady Carla Markell (left) is greeted by Tina Morrow.
1:18 p.m., Oct. 30, 2013--Addressing the 20th annual Meet the
Allies breakfast last week in Wilmington, Carla Markell recalled that
when her husband Gov. Jack Markell took office in January 2009 she felt
slightly overwhelmed by the challenge of serving the state as first
Markell told the assembled members of Public Allies Delaware
and their guests in attendance at the event that it was Michelle Obama
who initially inspired her to see the opportunity a first lady has to
promote positive social change at every level.
The lesson Markell had for the 29 Public Allies who are just
beginning their leadership journey was that, as individuals, people
should embrace the opportunities they each have to change the world for
Public Allies Delaware, an AmeriCorps program of the University of Delaware Center for Community Research and Service,
places future leaders in nonprofit apprenticeships for a 10-month term
of service while also providing intensive leadership training and
participation in neighborhood-based community development projects.
Meet the Allies is an annual event, introducing each new class of
future leaders to the broader community, including UD faculty and staff,
nonprofit leaders, corporate and foundation executives, and state and
local public officials.
Sharing the podium with Markell was George Watson, dean of the Universitys College of Arts and Sciences.
He commended the Center for Community Research and Service, which is part of the School of Public Policy and Administration, for sponsoring the Public Allies Delaware program and for its many other activities that engage the community.
Watson told those in the audience that the University of Delaware,
its College of Arts and Sciences and our Center for Community Research
and Service are so very pleased to work with all of you to carry out
this important community building program. Public Allies Delaware is a
wonderful example of the Universitys commitment to being engaged in the
community. This would not be possible without the willingness of each
of you and our funders who work with us.
Tina Morrow, director of Public Allies Delaware, said that we are
incredibly proud of all we have been able to accomplish as a program and
as a community of engaged leaders.
In the audience was Tony Allen, an executive with Bank of America and
a member of the Universitys Board of Trustees who co-founded the
Public Allies Program in 1994. Morrow acknowledged Allen and thanked him
for his leadership in helping to establish and build the program over
the last 20 years.
In April 2014 Public Allies Delaware will formally celebrate 20 years
and the contribution of more than 700,000 hours of service to Delaware
Morrow said the program is excited and energized to move into its next phase of development with a focus on community impact.
According to Morrow, This new phase will consist of a deeper
commitment to building stronger neighborhoods through extended
partnerships with community-led planning groups to cultivate community
leadership and increase civic participation.
