Efrem Jernigan – President
Facilitates the organizing and management of the Board of Directors, as well as, recruitment to accomplish the mission and vision of the organization. Collaboratively designs the programming of the organization for the betterment of the South Union and surrounding communities with a strong passion towards seniors to enjoy life to the fullest and youth education in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) career fields to expose and prepare them for the jobs that are awaiting them.
All accomplished through exercising “faith-based” to the fullest extent of walking by faith and not by sight. (If it hasn’t been done – Let’s do it!)
Alvis Prince – Vice President
Sandra Davis – Secretary
A passionate and dedicated soul that fell in love with the seniors aspect of the programming and her aroma has flowed throughout the organization to bring so much creativity in every program under our umbrella. A joyful foot soldier that makes the mission more fun than work. Every successful team must have an atomlike this!
Andre DeRhode Martinez – Treasurer
As an athlete most of his life and recruited in 2008 as a football player for Texas Southern University, he’s now a “Creative Math Producer”. He earned his accounting degree in 2013 and I think they taught him a hidden talent to teach Math in some very unique ways that has taken fear out of Math in The STEM Foundation program.
Monique LaCour – Board Member
They call her “The Coach” and she has this smooth delivery that eases a scary cat into some Evil Knievel tasks. Then she chimes in with, “Well done, grasshopper! I knew you’d take what you learned and run with it”. Needless to say, our organization has found comfort in following her into some great future programming to come.
Damien Smith – Board Member
An Electrical and Mechanical Engineering professional with outstanding planning, execution, monitoring and resource balancing skills that brings an exploratory appeal to our programming from Rocketry to our venture into STEAM programming. (We added the A for Arts and about to add a R as we improve students Reading skills)
Dr. Sonya Good – Board Member
A devoted Chemist that brings the “Cheerleader” component to our delivery through engaging her university students to volunteer towards delivering the Science lessons in a way that is so much fun that students want more time to learn. (Not to mention the “Frat-like chants after the lessons)
