Life-long resident of Dayton, OH. Graduated from Theodore Roosevelt High School and received an Associate Degree in Computer Programming from Sinclair Community College. Retired from the Federal Government after 37 years of service. I then worked part-time for Dayton and Montgomery County Public Health for 8 years as a facilitator for a Breast Cancer Support Group.
I have been a member of the Board of the Greater Edgemont Community Coalition and serve as secretary for nearly four years. I am a community activist. My hobbies are quilting and of course gardening.
I am a retired educator and currently sit on two local boards, Greater Edgemont Community Coalition and Wright Dunbar Area Credit Union. I have also worked in the entertainment industry in both music and broadcast television.
My family of origin moved into the Edgemont neighborhood in 1953 on Wisconsin
Boulevard. At that time, the area was predominantly white. Over the years the neighborhood essentially became a proud and active African American community. As a legacy participant, my father Leo Price, along with next-door neighbor Mrs. Mattie Davis and other neighborhood leaders collaborated to form – the Edgemont Solar Garden. The Edgemont Solar Garden project was internationally recognizes in 1984.
The Greater Edgemont Community Coalition’s goal is to restore the Edgemont Solar Garden, to enhance the Edgemont neighborhood and to revitalize the Greater West Dayton area to the prominence it once enjoyed.
