Earlier this week, OSI Community Fellows Lanaea C. Featherstone (2013) and Shantell Roberts (2017) attended the Daily Record’s “Leading Women” celebration at the Westin Annapolis. Both Featherstone and Roberts were named as Leading Women by the paper in October. Honorees, who were selected by previous Top 100 Women and Leading Women winners, were judged on professional experience, community involvement, and commitment to inspiring change.
Featherstone’s fellowship, “Empowering Latinos One ‘Click’ at a Time,” was designed to teach Latino immigrants basic computer skills. Roberts’ project, Touching Young Lives, aims to get the Portable Alternative Crib (P.A.C.) as well as information on safe sleeping methods for babies to as many parents as possible.
