A mentor of mine once told me the best ways to learn in life are by reading and talking to people. I read as much as I can, but when it comes to social understanding I find the latter is more rewarding. Going different places and speaking to people from different backgrounds gives you a genuine perspective on the true mindset of your community. "Community" is a word we all use and interpret differently.

History and social studies have always been my favorite subjects in school. Rockford has and is producing so many accomplished, upstanding citizens. Look up any list of “famous people from Rockford, Illinois.” the list is so long with people from all different professional fields it will make your head spin. George Santayana is credited for the famous quote “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.” However, in regards to these seven famous Rockford ladies, I would be honored to follow in their footsteps.
