The Wichita Branch NAACP wins it's second NAACP Thalheimer Award in Two Years!!

Last night, the Wichita Branch NAACP received it's second NAACP Thalheimer award in two years. Prior to 2006, the Wichita Branch received one other Thalheimer award in 1959. Chester Lewis was on hand to receive the award for outstanding branch activities, not the least of which, the Dockum drug Store sit-in which had been completed months earlier by the NAACP Youth Council.

The Wichita Branch received a Thalheimer for outstanding branch activities once more in 2006, for our efforts on the issues of Racial Profiling, closing the academic achievement gap, increasing minority contracting opportunities, and eliminating the sale of drug paraphernalia.

This year, we didn't submit our branch activity report for consideration; submitting instead the Wichita NAACP Blog as an official Association Publication. We are proud to report that we received our second Thalheimer in the last two years and the third award for the Branch. We received second place for all publications for branches with fewer than 1,000 members.

Next year, we will attempt a trifecta; and we hope to win both Branch Activities and Publications. But NONE of this would be possible without the tremendous effort and support of our OUTSTANDING team and Executive committee. So to Lavonta, Carolyn, Kenya, Elaine, Mark, EW, VJ, Sandra, Mary Dean, Mary B, Barbara, Rev Eckels, Rev Smith, Walt, Tasleem, Wanda, all of the members of the Executive Board, and our general membership, I humbly thank you all... Now let's do it AGAIN!
