“I want to thank [DIHEF] so much for all you did to make our visit to the Dr. Dorothy Height Foundation a success. Our cohort absolutely loved the experience, the thoughtful luncheon, and valuable information and history. Experiences like this make an imprint our student’s lives forever. It is because of kind people like you that we hope for a brighter future for our youth, particularly women.” — Loretta Cheeks, Ph.D., Strong Ties, Founder & CEO
