Katie Chicquette Adams, a high school at-risk educator in the Appleton Area School District and a member of WEAC Region 3, has been named one of the Fox Cities Future 15. The Future 15 were selected by the Pulse Young Professionals Network, a program of the Fox Cities Chamber and the Fox Cities Regional Partnership in collaboration with USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin based on their professional dedication, strong sense of vision for the future of the Fox Cities and personal commitment to philanthropy in the community they call home.
These young professionals are cited for excelling “not only within their respective places of employment but also for giving back to the community in innumerable ways. These professionals shine new light on their diverse fields and positively influence our quality of life in the Fox Cities, an influence that plays an integral role in attracting and retaining talent in the area.”
Katie was asked: What is your vision for the Fox Cities? See her answer below:
“Increased empathy and understanding for the least understood and most judged members of our community is the dominant theme of my vision for the future of the Fox Cities. In my view, any measure that seeks to protect, support and understand those who have faced the greatest financial, physical, health-related and emotional difficulties is not only a kindness but a necessity.”
