Share the WOW! Spotlight

Our deepest thanks to Kim Sadler ( for Sharing the WOW!.  Kim is donating 200 books to the girls served by the Jacksonville Police Athletic League (  Girls at JAXPAL participate in athletics, leadership development, and educational enrichment programs, all while experiencing positive interactions with law enforcement.

“There’s a lot of hatred in the world right now,” Kim says, “There’s such a lack of respect and I’m tired of it. We’ve got to change that. We’ve got to pass along loving knowledge about how to navigate life. JAXPAL and WOWsdom! both share valuable lessons with girls to help prepare them for a future of leadership. I want to leave a footprint in the lives of these girls at JAXPAL. I hope that reading WOWsdom! does just that.”

WOWsdom! contributor Lakesha Burton is the JAXPAL’s Executive Director.  Now an Assistant Chief with the Jacksonville Police Department, she’s making history as the highest ranking African America woman in the department’s 190-year history.  Kudos all around to our amazing Share the WOW! community for joining us in creating a future of leadership for girls.
