White House Recognizes Evoluer House Founder as Champion of Change

The Evoluer House Founder and Executive Director Cheryl Ann Wadlington was one of 10 women in the nation selected by the White House as a Champion of Change for her leadership and work in extracurricular enrichment for marginalized girls of color.

“Dear Cheryl (Founder and Excutive Director of The Evoluer House), Congratulations on

being selected as a White House Champion of Change. Americans like you help carry

this tradition forward by reaching for new ideas that will help our country win the future.

You and your fellow Champions embody the change you want to see in the world.”

- The Honorable Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States

White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett said, “Learning shouldn’t end when the school bell rings, so neither should our work to ensure every child has the opportunity to thrive. That’s why all young people, including marginalized girls and girls of color, deserve to have access to great after-school and summer experiences that engage their curiosity and help them grow. Our Champions of Change are doing just that in their communities, and they’re creating a brighter future for the next generation in the process. We’re proud to lift their work at the White House, and hope other local leaders emulate the extraordinary examples they’ve set.”

The event was live streamed on the White House website at on September 30. Follow the conversation at #WHChamps
