Evoluer House Founder Cheryl Ann Wadlington Honored by The Philadelphia Tribune
The Evoluer House Founder Cheryl Ann Wadlington was among those named to The Philadelphia Tribune's 2019 list of Philadelphia's Most Influential African American leaders.
From the Tribune:
"They came from schools and colleges, from corporations, small business and unions, from government at all levels, from law firms and non-profits, from storied art institutions and up-and-coming startups, from the news media and the entertainment world. But they all had one thing in common: They are the people who make things happen in Philadelphia, the people whose influence drives the city."
The national fashion and beauty journalist founded and became chief executive officer in 2004 of Philadelphia-based The Evoluer House. Under Wadlington’s leadership, the organization has delivered award-winning empowerment programs over the past 14 years to more than 1,600 teen girls of color experiencing unique social and emotional challenges and barriers to success. The Evoluer House works to equip the most underserved and hardest- to-reach girls in Philadelphia with essential tools to become college-bound and career-ready, thus breaking the cycle of inter-generational poverty. As a testament to its success, 100 percent of Evoluer House graduates finish high school on time and 90 percent go on to four-year colleges.
