Theresa Harper, a Realtor with Sibcy Cline West Chester, was honored with the “Distinguished Volunteer Award” on October 6, 2018 from the Cincinnati NAACP at the Freedom Fund Dinner.
Theresa has been an active member of the Cincinnati NAACP for many years and has served on the executive committee for 16 years. For the past 15 years she has served as the Cincinnati Youth Advisor, teaching leadership skills and empowering students to improve their community by proposing legislative changes and policies enforcement. She has also served as the State of Ohio NAACP Youth and College Advisor from 2013 – 2016 coordinating youth programing and training. Theresa has been involved for 16 years as the NAACP Chair of ACT-SO (Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics.) This group pulls together 32 talent and enrichment programs for students culminating with a yearly competition. (Fairfield is offering ACT-SO as a class – which is the first in the nation.) Theresa is also very active with her church and currently serves as the social action chairperson.
Says Rob Streicher, vice president/sales manager of the Sibcy Cline West Chester office, “We are very proud of Theresa and are very happy to have her as part of our team. She exemplifies what ‘giving back to the community’ is throughout the year. She is very deserving of her volunteer honor.”
The Cincinnati NAACP was established in 1915 and is the region’s oldest civil rights organization. It focuses on eliminating discrimination and inequality through empowerment, economic inclusion, criminal justice reform and transparency.
