TTA President's Message


Greetings Area II Top Teens,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome each one of you back to the 2017 – 2018 program year. I am Teen Joshua White and I am your reelected Area II TTA President.

I greet you on behalf of Area II; and am excited to be working with each of you. I hope that our time together will be fun, inspiring and informative. During the previous program year, under the awesome leadership of Lady Pat Cason, we’ve had officers training and have established a system of reporting both project and program activities to the Area II 1st and 2nd Vice Presidents. We also have done some phenomenal things during our last program year. We collectively fundraised and raised amazing amounts for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and we turned TTA purple and Walked for Babies with March of Dimes. We also enjoyed each other’s company at our annual Area II Conference in Virginia Beach and many of us met again in St. Louis for Syn-Lod 2017.

I am excited to be working with each chapter in Area II and am looking forward to sharing new ideas and experiences. As we begin to roll up our sleeves and get to work, I ask each of you to take a moment and remember that both Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc. and Top Teens of America are organizations rooted in the spirit of giving back and of service. We give back to our friends and families, to our local communities, to our nation and to our world. In the words of our immediate past National TTA President, Gerra Gistand, “as a Top Teen we don't think of serving as a duty but a great opportunity. Through our service to others, we can change the world. We should take advantage of every opportunity to develop ourselves as individuals while being of service to the organization and the world.” Our organization needs your time, your talents and your voice. I challenge you to be active in your chapters, be supportive of each other and live our motto, “Participation is our foundation as leaders of tomorrow.”

In closing, I would like to thank all the TLOD chapters and advisors in Area II and nationally who provide constant support, mentoring and encouragement. And I would like to welcome our newly elected Area II Director, Lady Sandra Clark. I am both honored and excited that she is heading our leadership team.  And as always, I extend a huge thanks to Lady Pat Cason, our fearless leader and all the phenomenal Top Ladies who encourage, inspire us daily.  When you see any of them, please be sure to thank them for all that they do.

Lastly, I would like to thank every Top Teen and Top Lady in Area II for the huge support that you gave me in my bid for National TTA office.


Yours In Service,

Teen Joshua White
Area II TTA President,
National TTA Sergeant At Arms
Chapter Director of Operations
Top Teens of America
Prince George’s County Chapter
