A Decade of Leadership in Allentown

Ce-Ce graduated from Cedar Crest College with a degree in Elementary Education. As the first person in her family to finish high school and graduate from college, Ce-Ce understands the life-changing impact that a quality education has on a person, their family, and their community. After graduating, Ce-Ce decided to give back to her community by teaching and working for non-profits, including the Caring Place Youth Development Center and the Boys and Girls Club of Allentown before embarking on her bid for school board.
