Keynote Speaker 

 

 

Pam Wade

 

 

Pamela Wade has over 25 years experience in community service and public relations. She has the pristine and proven ability to enhance relationships and effectively communicate with diverse individuals. She is a master trainer, organizer and advocate. Pam believes that one’s inability to effectively communicate and adapt to diversity is the stronghold that keeps him or her from reaching their full potential.

Pam currently works full-time with The City of Austin, Human Resources Department as a Municipal Civil Service Coordinator. She is also the principal consultant and owner of A’JA Consulting Firm (affectionately named after her grandchildren) firm derived from a birth of unexpected possibilities. A’JA provides Pam an opportunity to share her insight, experience, professionalism and valued skills to individuals, organizations and agencies.

Through many leadership roles Pam has been honored and recognized for her dedication and commitment: NAACP- Presidents Award, Texas Alliance of Black School Educators-Outstanding Leadership, National Coalition of Title One-Outstanding Service, NAACP- Community Service Award, Family Forward-Leadership Award, African American Heritage Council-Healthy Hero Award, Central East Austin Weed and Seed-Community Leadership, Richard E. Hopkins-Torch Award, City of Austin - African American Heritage Award, East Austin Coalition - Outstanding Leadership, Blacks in Government – Outstanding Service, NAACP – Outstanding Leadership.

Named, Influential Leader by the Austin American Statesman, Ms. Wade was the First African-American Female Campaign Manager for a County-wide Race.

Although she has been recognized for her accomplishments, she is most proud of being a mother to Candice Wade-Cooper and Camela Wade-Guyton, and grandmother to Jayden Cooper, Alan Jr. and Addyson Guyton.

 


Mistress of Ceremonies

 

 

Quita Culpepper

5 p.m. Anchor

Austin Chronicles 2013 Best TV Anchor award winner.

First, there was the Big Bang. Then, there was Quita Culpepper. Oh Quita, how we love thee, let us count the ways ... What can we say about Quita that we haven't already said? Let's just say this: She. Is. Awesome. Charming, smart, engaging, and so very Austin.

"Journalism has always been a huge part of my life...I remember being a little kid, my nose practically pressed against the tv screen watching the 11 o'clock news. (No, my parents didn't let me stay up that late. I snuck out of bed to see it! Sorry Mom and Dad!) My family and I moved from Upstate New York to Austin when I was 13, and I've come to think of this unique and quirky city as my second hometown.

I was lucky enough to get my first job in news right here in Austin, working for a local radio station, and after that, landed at KVUE, where I anchor KVUE News Weekend and report three days a week. I also get to do a consumer segment called "Does it Work Wednesday," which I really enjoy.

I've been in this business for more than 15 years...won quite a few awards and accolades along the way, and met everyone from the President of the United States to the man who works behind the counter at my favorite restaurant. And I've enjoyed every moment. I'm lucky enough to work with a great group of people.

Journalism -- this is what I do. And I'm proud to do it for KVUE."

Entertainment

 

 

 

iamhannalashay--Vocalist, Model, Actress

 

I Am Hanna LaShay is an American vocalist, model and actress. Born in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. Hanna has always had a passion for entertainment, fashion and performance. Some family members proclaim she was born with a pair of heels and a

microphone in each hand! With a sense of pop, jazz and modern day R&B, her voice creates a category of her own.

 

Hanna’s aspirations for entertainment are twofold. While Hanna loves to express herself through performance, she also likes to use her public platform to inspire teen girls all over the world. Hanna’s personal story includes struggling with her own confidence and self doubt due to being bullied for many years throughout middle school. Despite the hardship of being bullied, Hanna made the choice to defy the odds, to stand up for herself and to pursue her passion. With the help of her loving mother's support she has begun to surpass her goals and reach great measures.

 

Hanna’s singing and performing credits include: The Urban Music Festival, The Nzuri Natural Hair Show, The Armed Forces Natural Hair Expos, The Women in Jazz Association, The KAZI 88.7 Austin Summerfest, Austin's Sip and Social Event, Sister Tri-ing Health & Fitness, The Intersection Dance Program, and The U Better Sing PBS web series.

 

Hanna’s modeling career includes print, video and runway for the following:

Toombas Jean and Denim Company, Do You Naturally Holistic Hair Salon, Austin Fashion Week 2012, Designer Isabella Rose Taylor, Dress Austin, and Andre Terry.
