Paul And May Gayle Mengert Host A Reception For Congresswoman Alma Adams


On October 30, Paul and May Gayle Mengert hosted a reception for Congresswoman Alma Adams, a distinguished retired professor from Bennett College and an alumnus of North Carolina A&T and Ohio State universities.
The Congresswoman served more than 20 years in the North Carolina legislature before being elected to the U.S. Congress. 

Congresswoman Adams serves on the Subcommittee on Nutrition and in 2015 founded the Adams Hunger Initiative to address and combat food insecurity and hunger.

Her focus closely parallels the Mengerts' work with the Second Harvest Food Bank of North Carolina and Greensboro Urban Ministry to raise funds to feed the needy.

The Mengerts salute Congresswoman Adams for her work promoting quality education, which creates a path for underprivileged children to the middle class. She has fought tirelessly throughout her career to improve our public schools and protect women¹s rights from the extremists in the legislature. The Congresswoman also led the effort to increase the minimum wage in North Carolina, earning her statewide recognition as a champion for the middle class.
