We at the Homeless Persons Representation Project want to extend our warmest congratulations to two of our outstanding team members on their recent graduations!
Kemmesha Thomas (left), who has been an invaluable office clerk for our Montgomery County office, just graduated from the University of Maryland - College Park with her Master of Public Health degree, focusing on Health Equity. Kemmesha's passion for social justice and improving health outcomes for under-resourced communities has made her an ideal fit for our organization's mission. We're so proud of her for attaining this significant academic achievement while also excelling at her role here.
In addition, our former Linda Kennedy Economic Justice Fellow Audreina Blanding (right) has just graduated from the University of Baltimore with her Juris Doctor degree. During Audreina's fellowship with us, it was clear she has a brilliant legal mind and deep commitment to her work, and she was key to the work on and success of the Prevent Electronic Benefits Theft Act of 2023. We have no doubt her J.D. will lead to even greater accomplishments in providing legal advocacy for unhoused and low-income individuals.
To Kemmesha and Audreina - we are inspired by your drive to keep growing personally and professionally. Thank you for being part of our team here at HPRP, and congratulations on earning your graduate degrees! We can't wait to see what you accomplish next.
