Founder/Executive Director

While serving as Mayor Pro-tem, Interim Mayor, and City Councilwoman in the City of Forest Park, Mrs. Adams envisioned giving teenagers a vehicle to promote their interest through active involvement in community activities.  She envisioned teens serving as ambassadors to the City leaders on behalf of their peers.  From this, the Forest Park Teen Council was officially launched.  She has placed her stamp on the City of Forest Park, the United States Air Force, and the United States Postal Inspection Service, in addition to her community, civic organizations, church, and family.  She holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration and has a GA Certification in Mediation.
