GDI Announces New Leadership


Steppin super group, GDI just announced that Cheryl “Sugafoot” Powe will take the post of president and Donald Blount will take the post of Vice President.  GDI is a unique organization in the since that leadership of the organization rotates every couple of years and new posts are selected.  It will be interesting to Cheryl in the role of president, as she is known for being sweet and accommodating, a stark contrast from Cora O’Kelly’s matter-of-fact corporate leadership style.  Donald Blount, on the other hand, is a past president of GDI, so I’m sure he’ll take his past leadership experience into his new role.

In honor of the organization change, GDI is hosting an inaugural ticket sale with discounted weekend prices for the 2014 Heritage Ball.  Details are below!
