The Sharonda Ann Coleman-Singleton Center was established after the tragic killings at Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17th, 2015.
Sharonda was a woman of God, a loving mother, speech pathologist, track coach and a joyful spirit to all that had the pleasure of knowing her. She was born on September 24th, 1969 in Newark, NJ. She obtained her bachelor's degree from South Carolina State University and a Master's from Montclair State University. In 1992 Sharonda moved to Atlanta Georgia where she then married and had three children. After spending fifteen years in Atlanta, Sharonda and her family relocated to Charleston, SC where she spent the remainder of her life. During her time in Charleston, she became a minister and devoted an enormous amount of time worshipping and proclaiming the word of God to those who could not make it to church. She had an affinity towards the youth and young adults and desire to help them become more like Christ. The SACS Center was created to continue on her legacy as a woman of God and a change agent in the community.
