A Drew native was featured in a recent New York Times article about retirees who’ve found purpose by voluteering in their communities

Gloria Dickerson was an accountant who worked for the Kellogg Foundation for 35 years. After returning to the Delta, the 61 year old focused on changing the mind-set of impoverished children in her hometown and surrounding Sunflower County. After 5 years working in local schools with the early literacy program Pen or Pencil, Dickerson started the non-profit We2Gether Creating Change which she says boosts morale and addresses poverty as a state of mind. Of the 1500 local kids the group has helped over the past two years, she says the payoff was seeing 97 percent enroll in college.
