Dana Michelle Fergins: Summer presents silver lining for missed learning opportunities

The point of this column is to further acknowledge the efforts of fellow servant educators who were willing and capable to adjust their instructional content, and to provide a few points of reference for students and their families during the summer months. One of the most common but effective advisories is promoting continuous reading, and while physical libraries are closed, there are online reading and educational resources free of charge.

Dana Michelle Fergins: Summer presents silver lining for missed learning opportunities Columnist writes there are several resources and learning opportunities this summer for students.

Amazing! Congratulations Soror!

Congratulations to Soror Lisa D. Cook on being confirmed to serve on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. This historic moment marks the first time in the Federal Reserve's 109-year history that a Black woman was nominated and confirmed to serve on the powerful board of governors.

Dr. Cook is a macroeconomist and professor of economics and international relations at Michigan State University. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Indianapolis's Federal Home Loan Bank, and Rende Progress Capital Community Development Financial Institution. Dr. Cook has previously worked for the Council of Economic Advisers, the Treasury Department, the World Bank, and several financial institutions. By assuming this role, Dr. Cook follows in the footsteps of Delta Sigma Theta's 1st National President Sadie T.M. Alexander.

Soror Cook was initiated into Delta Sigma Theta at the Eta Kappa Chapter at Spelman College, where she was in the Honors Program and graduated magna cm laude with a BA in Philosophy. Additionally, she received her Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Berkeley. Soror Cook is a Diamond Life Member and member of the Eastern Region.

Join us in congratulating Dr. Lisa Cook! We wish her all the best as she makes monetary policy to empower the American people.

In 2008, I was selected for Administrative Internship in my district. I would learn the tools to become an Assistant Principal through this program. They placed me at two different schools.

As an administrative intern, I was also pledging Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. It was an interesting time! Yet, one of the best memories and experiences of my life. You determine what you want to do! I had hope, resilience, and optimism! Most importantly, I had faith to conquer my goals! It’s all in your mindset! #growthmindset #deltasigmatheta #goals #schoolleadership #vision #personaldevelopment

One year anniversary of transformational coaching with @anchoredwithexcellence_2011 . I have met short term and long term goals in measurable time with actionable results.

I have built more self-awareness with emotional intelligence, more motivation towards goals, expanded outside of my comfort zone, and reached higher levels of potential as a leader! I love my Thursdays with Coach Dee! @making_learning_sparkle @anchoredwithexcellence_2011 #goals #alignment #motivation #personaldevelopment #transformation #schoolleadership

If you're a Black woman in corporate America, academia, entertainment - 10x out of 10 you've had a Ketanji Brown Jackson experience at least once in your life. I'm exhausted for her and for us.

We watched our lives play out on TV all week and the survey says: We are not crazy! These folks try to talk to us and play us like we're stupid and we just have to grin and bear it. Meanwhile, we're holding more degrees and credentials than the ones questioning our ideas, value, experience, and worth. It's tiring.

Take a deep breath and exhale, sisters. We are qualified and we are more than enough. I see you, Queens!
