History image
Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc. – NewRock Chapter was chartered June 3, 2018 as the vision of Dee Dawkins-Haigler, Debbie Hillman, Joy Jackson-Guilford, Tisa Smart-Washington, and Sherri Washington.  Along with 28 other women, the organizers chartered NewRock Chapter under the guidance of Lady Drema Lee Woldman, TLOD's 13th National President and Lady Crystal Pittman, TLOD's 11th National Area IV Director. This chartering established NewRock as the third TLOD chapter in metropolitan Atlanta. Under the leadership of organizer and first president Sherri Washington, NewRock charted a Top Teens of America (TTA) chapter August 26, 2018 to provide a service and leadership-oriented organization for youth ages 13-18.  NewRock continually focuses on advocacy and community engagement that mobilizes the talents, energies, and skills of members to address moral and social issues affecting women and youth even during the COVID-19 pandemic.

NewRock Chapter, along with our award-winning TTA chapter, continues to make an indelible mark in Newton, Rockdale, DeKalb, and Henry Counties and attracts diverse women and youth whose personal missions align with national programmatic thrusts and projects that promote “Continuity of Service in ACTION."
