Since joining the Washington School for Girls in 2015 as the Family Relations Coordinator, DeAnna McCall has made a significant impact on the lives of our parents and families through transparent communication that continues to foster long lasting relationships. Ms. McCall graduated from Howard University with her Masters in Social Work in 2008 and has since devoted 13 years to case management, intensive home based counseling, and parent support. Now serving as our Director of Recruitment & Family Relations, Ms. McCall's leadership is grounded in her passion to eradicate systems of inequity.
Ms. McCall’s steadfast and personable approach keeps WSG’s families at the center of our mission, ensuring that their voices are consistently and intentionally represented. It comes at no surprise that she has earned an acceptance into Seeding Disruption, a Washington, D.C. based fellowship for youth-facing professionals, who have a shared focus on the elimination of unjust systems. ¨I look forward to being a bridge for Racial Equity within the educational sector. The school is the one environment that has the convergence of multiple systems that impact the life of the student. To be aware of the challenges that persist within is one thing but to be that bridge to usher in equity is a goal that I intend to pursue,¨ says Ms. McCall.
Over a course of 13 months, Seeding Disruption brings together a diverse group of leaders who develop solutions for the communities they serve. The goal of Ms. McCall, and the members of the 26 person cohort is to further develop their skills and knowledge, while ‘catalyzing movement towards racial equity.’
Thank you Ms. McCall for your vital work and leadership. To learn more about Seeding Disruption, continue reading here.
