What a way to end the school year! The RWF Family spent the weekend in our nation’s capital learning new things, exploring history and making incredible new memories. Our trip was highlighted by a day in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. What a wonderful experience for our teens to learn about the rich history and contributions of African Americans in all industries and fields.
Our second day was spent at Mount Vernon the home of George Washington. We were all fascinated by the first hand account of the life of Christopher Sheels, George Washington’s valet. Our day ended with a historical cruise down the Potomac. We ended the day with a DC Version of our RWF Evening of Empowerment with special guest, Bridget Bailey Lipscomb, an Assistant Director in the Department of Justice, Civil Division, Environmental Torts
Office. She shared her incredible journey with us and the importance of staying focused on achieving goals.
