Welcome New PWC Board Chair, Crystal Houston!

8 Jul


Tonya-SXSW-49190.jpgThe Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc., was created to carry on the vision of our fearless founder, Barbra Watson-Riley. I proudly served as the founding PWCF Board Chair of this amazing extension of Barbra’s tireless work in the areas of women’s health, specifically breast cancer and heart disease.

I recently accepted an appointment to serve as the first African-American women to serve as Associate Dean of Academic Affairs at the UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law. Therefore, effective July 1, 2019, inaugural board member Crystal Houston will serve as Chairperson of the Board.

crystal-houstonCrystal brings a wealth of non-profit, entrepreneurial, and managerial experience and is breathing new life into our initiatives and programs. I will continue to serve on the board as Business, Finance and Legal Lead and look forward to leading the fundraising effort for this year’s BAG IT for the CAUSE™ National Service Initiative
