Good morning everyone and to all my African American or Black Kings and Queens, Happy Black History Month. I’m very proud to say this to say this is a great time as I reflect over my career. I am the first female and Black Fire Chief of the City of Mansfield since establishment in 1847 and DeSoto Parish. Thanks to the Mayor of Mansfield Curtis McCoy, Councilwoman Marylinda Green and City Council members. The first Black EMT-B for DeSoto Parish EMS, now serving as the EMS President of the Board of Directors, I was the first paid firefighter/EMT B for DeSoto Parish Fire Dist. #9.
