The Pi Rho Omega Chapter is proud of Member Charleita M. Richardson, Former Chapter President. The Valentine Museum honored Charleita as a 2019 Richmond History Makers’ honoree at Virginia Union University’s Claude G. Perkins Living and Learning Center on Tuesday, March 12, 2019. The Richmond History Makers & Community Update highlights trailblazers in the community by celebrating their lasting contributions to the Greater Richmond region. Charleita is the President and CEO of Partnership for the Future (PFF), an organization that helps students with limited resources transition from high school to college and employment so they can become successful, contributing members of the community. PFF operates the largest and most accomplished privately-funded workforce development-college preparatory program in the Commonwealth of Virginia, no other program offers the same breadth of services. As a native Richmonder and graduate of Richmond Public Schools, she considers it a personal mission to help students in this community reach their dream of going to college. Charleita has always lived by the concept that “to whom much is given, much is required.”
