Longtime community activist Sara Dahlice Malone was installed as president of the Rome-Floyd County chapter of the NAACP on Jan. 6
Joining her on the leadership team are Larry G. Morrow Sr. as first vice president, Robert Henderson as treasurer, Eric Holland as member at large and Jackie Jenkins as secretary.
Malone earlier said she hopes to promote unity across the community during the coming year. She offered to take on the post because she felt she could use her talents to help make the organization stronger and bring the community together.
She’ll also work to generate interest in improving workforce opportunities and education for the youth of Rome.
“We need to get our young people more involved in the community because they are our future — and one of my biggest goals is to reinstate the (NAACP) youth group,” Malone said earlier.
The One Community United program is an effort that Malone believes has been highly successful in bringing people of all races together.
The local chapter of the NAACP currently has approximately 125 active members.
