The summer of 2014 kicked off the beginning of The Precious Pearls Project, a nonprofit organization committed to the empowerment of girls in DeSoto County. The Precious Pearls group targets adolescent girls in grades 6 through 8. This group is geared toward “empowering girls to believe that they are unique, valuable and made for excellence” through exposure to new experiences, developmental workshops, and individual pairing with a mentor.
On June 3, Precious Pearls’ founders, Shameka Hollimon and Kameelah Goodman, held the group’s informational meeting at Elizabeth Missionary Baptist Church, presenting parents and prospective members with plans for the upcoming summer activities.
