The White House has recognized ten individuals from across the country as White House "Champions of Change" for extracurricular enrichment, after-school, and summer programming for marginalized girls, including girls of color. Bridgette M. King, an instructor in the College of Arts and Sciences at Argosy University, Online Programs, was one of the ten women honored.
These individuals were selected by the White House for their leadership in developing and supporting high-quality after-school and extracurricular programs that create opportunities for girls from marginalized communities so that all young people can reach their full potential.
Through the initiative on "Advancing Equity for Women and Girls of Color," The White House Council on Women and Girls has worked across the federal government to identify key obstacles facing marginalized girls, including girls of color, and highlight innovative solutions to those obstacles. One key issue that girls from marginalized communities often face is access to extracurricular programs and summer enrichment activities that allow them to become stronger students, leaders, and citizens. For girls to reach their full potential, they need safe and nurturing community and school environments where they can learn, grow and thrive within the school day hours and beyond. Extracurricular programs enrich their understanding of the arts and the sciences, reinforce the skills learned in school, promote health and wellness, and foster their confidence and leadership.
The event featured remarks by White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett and CEO and Founder of Black Girls Rock! Beverly Bond. White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett said, "Learning shouldn't end when the school bell rings, so neither should our work to ensure every child has the opportunity to thrive. That's why all young people, including marginalized girls and girls of color, deserve to have access to great after-school and summer experiences that engage their curiosity and help them grow. Our Champions of Change are doing just that in their communities, and they're creating a brighter future for the next generation in the process. We're proud to lift their work at the White House, and hope other local leaders emulate the extraordinary examples they've set."
The Champions of Change program was created as an opportunity for the White House to feature individuals doing extraordinary things to empower and inspire members of their communities. The event was streamed on the White House website.

Dr. Lee A. Underwood, faculty member in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Argosy University, Phoenix, recently was quoted in LifeZette.com stating that, “most suicide victims die as a result of a mental illness,” Underwood is a licensed clinical psychologist, and in the article focused on suicide, explains that, “nobody kills themselves without being depressed.” He states that just as family members would rally behind someone with cancer — so should they accept and help family members struggling with mental illness. “Look at it as another area of health, like diabetes or high blood pressure. Realize that depression is a treatable illness,” he said.
