Wallace Engages Community Activists at Wabongo Leadership Council 

ROCKFORD, Ill. – Encouraging residents to become actively engaged 
citizens within the community, state Rep. Litesa Wallace, D-Rockford, 
joined a Wabongo Leadership Council meeting Wednesday evening.

"Rockford is fortunate to have a number of local organizations that are 
striving to improve the quality of life for every member of the 
community," Wallace said. "The Wabongo Leadership Council is one such 
organization that is helping to produce current and future leaders for 
this region."

The Wabongo Leadership Council works as a volunteer organization 
designed to promote education, health and wellness, and community and 
economic wellness within Rockford. Activities have included organizing 
college tours for Rockford high school students and promoting summer 
employment opportunities for youth. Collaboration is emphasized by the 
Wabongo Leadership Council, which holds networking meetings on the first 
Wednesday of every month at varying local restaurants. For more

"Without the hard work of Wabongo members, there are a lot of Rockford 
students who would not have had the opportunity to see the type of 
higher education and career opportunities that were available to them," 
Wallace said. "It has been great to see this organization grow and 
develop, and I look forward to seeing them play an important role in the 
lives of many within this community."
