Dear President Mitchell:

 

Councilmembers Natalyn Archibong, District 5, Alex Wan, District 6 and Mary Norwood, Post 2

At Large, are pleased to submit for nomination for Ms. Meghan McCloskey to an appointment to the Atlanta Youth Commission.

 

Meghan, who lives in the Virginia Highlands area, is a mother of two and has been a volunteer with the Atlanta Public School system for the past few years.   In her work with the schools, she has learned a great deal about childhood hunger, its negative effect on learning and the need for trusted adult participation in all children's lives.  Meghan has participated in numerous projects, as an active community leader, and  is very passionate about our city's  youth. She welcomes the opportunity to serve and set a good example for them, as well as her family. There is no doubt that Meghan McCloskey will bring a wealth of knowledge and a fresh perspective to the Atlanta Youth Commission.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

Natalyn Archibong, Councilmember

District 5

 

Alex Wan, Councilmember

District 6

 

Mary Norwood, Councilmember

Post 2-At Large
