Dear Members and Friends,

It is an honor to serve as the President of Tracy African American Association. We will push forward and be On Purpose to continue our mission. We will provide support and educational opportunities for youth,  sponsor and promote educational, cultural and social activities that foster awareness and diversity and create a cooperative environment that unites the Tracy community.

Our theme for the next two years will be to be On Purpose in everything that we do as an organization and in our lives. Webster defines Purpose is:

  • the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.
  • an intended or desired result; end; aim; goal.
  • and determination; resoluteness

So we will be On Purpose…
