- August 8, 2018
The South Charlotte Chapter was officially installed on August, 28, 2010, after an exciting journey that began in September 2007 by a determined group of talented women. With the Greensboro Chapter Sponsorship and the leadership of Sonja Nichols, the South Charlotte Provisional Chapter worked diligently in their community and with National and Regional Officers to ensure that their dream of being part of Jack and Jill, Inc. be successfully realized. By 2010, the Provisional Chapter, which consisted of 63 mothers and 121 children and teens, completed 13 mother’s community service projects, 80 program activities, and raised close to $20,000 in monetary donations. Today, the South Charlotte Chapter has more than doubled in size with a strong and dedicated membership of 118 mothers.
Since its inception, the South Charlotte Chapter has been blessed with strong leadership beginning with the continued guidance by President Sonja Nichols (2010-2012), and amply followed by President Nikki Fleming (2012-2014), President Nichelle Levy (2014-2018), and current President Yolanda Lindsay (2018- 2020). Recently, in July 2018, the South Charlotte Chapter was awarded the distinct honor of being deemed a Five Star Chapter of Excellence during Jack and Jill of America’s 43rd National Convention in Kansas City, Missouri. President Lindsay proudly accepted the honor on the Chapter’s behalf during a special ceremony. This Chapter continues to uphold the values and legacy set by the organization through programming and outreach with the sincere understanding that we all have “The Power to Make a Difference.”
